Stop 2003 member Server being master browser

I know there is a registry key where you can stop a Windows 2003 member server from trying to take the master browser role.  

Can anyone help me and tell me where it is please.

Hi MarionTaylor,

Taken from this


Windows 2000 or later operating systems1. Click Start, click Run, and then type services.msc
2. Right-click the Computer Browser service, and then click Properties.
3. In the Startup type list, select Manual, and then click OK.
4. Right-click the Computer Browser service, and then click Restart.
It should be:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ Browser\Parameters

IsDomainMaster = No
MaintainServerList = No/Yes  <= your choice.
