Master Browser?

By ccrobinson2000 ·
How do I stop a Windows 98 machine from thinking it's a master browser in my W2K domain (I have 10 Win98 machines and only one seems to think it's a master browser & is causing elections over the network!)

When a computer starts and the value of the MaintainServerList entry in its registry is set to Auto, the master browser is responsible for telling the system whether or not to become a backup browser.
If the registry of a computer has the value of the MaintainServerList entry set to Yes, the computer is a backup browser for the domain or TCP/IP subnet.
Therefore, set the value of the MaintainServerList to NO and it will stop
