In the Regeistry
Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Browser\
Parameters]
Data Type: REG_SZ (String Value)
To control which computer is the Domain Master Browser, create a new string value, or modify the existing value, named "IsDomainMaster" and set the value to equal either "Yes", "No" or "Auto".

To prevent an NT Workstation or Server (non-PDC) from acting as a browser, create a new string value, or modify the existing value, named "MaintainServerList" and set it "No", the other options are "Yes", "No" or "Auto".

Restart Windows for the change to take effect.

See if that helps.
