My Netwok Places list is invisible every now and then

By mahboobkhan ·
Our network list goes off every now and then. When we look for all the servers and computers in "My Network Places", they will go away except for a few pcs. Then after a while it will show up and go away again.

While working on Backup Exec selection, there they have a selection list of "Active Directory network", I noticed that it does list them there. But nowhere else, whether in servers or PCs.
We have recently changed our network from Novell to Microsoft Server 2003 R2. Our old Novell servers and Border Managers run parallelly but we don't use them now and are left running for any old backup related issues. We are using almost all servers in 64 bit architecture. We use Windows XP SP2.

Someone suggested that it may have to do with the "Master Browser" problem. May be one PC is assuming the "Master Browser" and thus causing this disappearance. But I do not know what to do about it.
I would appreciate any lead on this very vexing problem.

Thank you.
