I have 5 machines logged into a workgroup.  Each machine has a different name.  However, one of the machines continues to report back nbt names is conflicting with another computer on the network.  I have flush the dns on all machines.  WINS is not installed and the DNS that is being used is from the ISP.  There are no hosts or lmhosts file present.  When i ping the workstations by name, they all respond correctly with the correct IP.  Any ideas where this coming from.?

This is a basic network setup.  However for some reason, all machines were initially setup using TCIP/IP, Netbeui and Appletalk.
