    Master Browser?

    I notice in my event logs that my computer keept trying to become a "master browser" and also advertises itself on the local network as a "master browser". My question is what is a master browser, and how do I stop it from trying to become one. It seems to be causing problems on the network, not least filling up all the event logs <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>.

    Windows help offers the following "useful" advice:

    User Action
    Contact your network administrator to stop the specified computer by exiting Windows. The network administrator can change the TCP/IP protocol configuration to the correct subnet mask.


    As all the IP addresses are assigned automatically by DHCP I'm not sure if that applies?
