What problems are you experiencing?

All workgroup computers participate in a master browser election to see who will be the master browser for the workgroup. When one computer wins, it registers the [WORKGROUP:1d] name for itself so that other workgroup computers can easily look up the master browser. If a computer is refusing to relinquish the master browser role, even though it has lost the election, it can cause this error.

Hi Budapest,
thanks for replying, sorry for the lateness to your reply, the problem i am getting is unexplained crashes, i am trying to find out why,
my event viewer is full of these reports and i'm trying to find out what is the meaning of the reports in case this is causing the crashes
these are the reports i get,

The master browser has received a server announcement from the computer KAREN-2B940CF26 that believes that it is the master browser for the domain on transport NetBT_Tcpip_{A74A19F0-96D. The master browser is stopping or an election is being forced.

The browser was unable to promote itself to master browser. The browser will continue to attempt to promote itself to the master browser, but will no longer log any events in the event log in Event Viewer.

The browser was unable to promote itself to master browser. The computer that currently believes it is the master browser is KAREN-2B940CF26.

The browser service has failed to retrieve the backup list too many times on transport \Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{A74A19F0-96D9-432B-9335-D885867825F9}. The backup browser is stopping.

The browser was unable to retrieve a list of servers from the browser master \\KAREN-2B940CF26 on the network \Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{A74A19F0-96D9-432B-9335-D885867825F9}. The data is the error code

they maybe the problem i don't know, if they are not then it is onward to the next possible cause,
thanks for your time mate

How is your network set up (ie. how many computers, what type etc)?

one cable modem, linksys router and 3 computers hardwired into the router, my computer is a new quad core on a gigabyte board, the computer (karen) is a AMD athlon 2000 running on a kt33-8235 motherboard, the third computer is an apple mac in the sons room but no problem with that one,
just the problem with mine and karens,

just a little update- I had a couple of crashes just with the repot as follows

Application popup: SysFader: iexplore.exe - Application Error : The instruction at "0x7c912f05" referenced memory at "0x716138e4". The memory could not be "read" (this one three times)

Application popup: Explorer.EXE - Application Error : The instruction at "0x7c912f05" referenced memory at "0x716138e4". The memory could not be "read".
