Problem :

Currently I am using Windows Server 2008 R2. I usually connect the server by remote desktop connection. But nowadays my server disconnects my remote desktop session randomly and also all my application running during the session are closed. My issue is the remote desktop connection is forcibly logged off by Windows Server 2008 R2.
After reconnecting when I try to open the event viewer I often see the following error:

session ‘microsoft security client’ oobe stopped due to the following error: 0xC000000D

Why my Windows Server 2008 R2 behaving like that?
