Registry String Values keep reverting to 1 on Windows Server 2003

I currently scan documents through my Toshiba E Studio 350 photocopier.The scanned file automatically is saved onto a shared network drive on Windows Server 2003 platform.

The problem i have is with the following 2 Windows Server 2003 registry key strings:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmanserver\parameters\enablesecuritysignature]              And
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmanserver\parameters\requiresecuritysignature]  

I have to manually change the value in each of the 2 above strings to 0. For some reason these values reset themselves to 1 every day, which means i have to manually change them every day, as a result we cant save onto shared network drive unil the value is set to 0.

Can someone please assist me with this problem, is there a way to permanently set the values to 0??

Thanks in Advance

These two settings are set by the domain controller GPO.  By default, Win2k3 has these two set to enabled, so every time group policy refreshes, they're changed back.
