Slow performance from Windows XP Stations on Windows 2000 Server Network

Posted on 2004-10-29
Last Modified: 2010-04-14
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.

    have you checked ... is it coming back from domain Group Policy ??
    or for that matter from Local Policy...

    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.
