Slow performance from Windows XP Stations on Windows 2000 Server Network

Per Microsoft article Q321169 I have changed the RequireSecuritySignature value to 0 in and the EnableSecuritySignature value type 0 in the Server registry, yet when I reboot the server the Enable Security Signature reverts back to 1.  

This wasn't happening before I installed one or more of the latest service packs but now it is and the slow on the network for transferring files is slow.

I haven't changed any group policies or added any for that matter.  Where should I look.  The thing is that this was working, and then I did one of the MS Service packs and all of a sudden the value won't stay at 0.

Try using this tool to monitor registry and find-out which process is changing the registry key of our concern...
