I don't see how cvsnt could do that.. it's a user application so can't 
affect things like RDP and console login.. even on a heavily loaded 
machine those things will work (albeit slowly).

I'd try on a clean system - nothing else (especially AV) and see what 
happens.  It sounds more low level like a driver etc.
