after upgrading the domain from NT4 to 2003 (an in place upgrade was preformed)
at first everything was working fine, after a few days users start to complain that browsing throu network shares is very slow
browsing is slow even if we go directly to the ip address of the server holding the share
in my DC i get the folowing error message: source: mrxsmb   event id: 8033
event description: "The master browser has received a server announcement from the computer ATI-PC that believes that it is the master browser for the domain on transport NetBT_Tcpip_{1A99B86C-AB75-4A. The master browser is stopping or an election is being forced."
what can be the problem?

to barry: at first stopping the service seemed to have solved the problem
but after a few hours some clients are still having difficulties connecting to some network shares
the problems seem to happen only on the XP workstations
i am still getting the error messages i mentioned above on the DC, how can i stop them?

i am using  DHCP and DNS, the clients do not have a stattic ip address

the actual solurtion to the problem was fixing the DNS configuration
after that there were no more problems of this sort
