I sometimes accidently press a key combination in Word or Outlook which suddenly activates some Asian keyboard. I'm unable to type any other Western character.

The problem was related to me: when you press Alt + Shift, the Asian keyboard is activated. By pressing this key combination again, the Western keyboard is reactivated.

Copy/paste fails in CoRD when multiple remote desktop sessions are active

I often ran into an issue with CoRD failing to copy/paste between my host machine and my remote desktop machine. This only occured when multiple remote desktop session were active. The clipboard chain gets broken and copy/paste between the host machine and the remote desktop stops working.

To solve this, you need to execute the following batch file on the remote machine:

@echo off
taskkill /IM rdpclip.exe /F
start %SystemRoot%\system32\rdpclip.exe
