  • computer browser service - real answer to disabling

    I have been told here and other sites that if you disable the computer browser service that it does NOT disable the users ability to browse the network
    Then I have been told that it does.

    DO most admins disable this on clients machines to prevent them from becoming browsers or not?
    How do I fix getting 40 backup browsers on the network?

    Deploy the following registry settings to the member servers:
    Code:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Browser\Parameters]
    "IsDomainMaster"="FALSE"

      also think about removing the white spaces in the strings:
      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Browser\Parameters]
      "IsDomainMaster"="FALSE"

        Thanks but how do I fix the browser issues? WHy are machines promoting themselves?

        What happens if I just disable the browser service on the clients? Can they still browse the network?
