I have 3 Windows Vista HOme Premium computers. 2 desktop and one laptop. every once and a while  I will start gettting an error in event viewer about who is the master browser. I didnt think I had a master browser but it used to be just the two desktops that had this arguement but today I got the error on the desktop from the laptop that it thinks it is the master browser. The error is" Bowser" Event ID #8003 Can you tell me what this means and who is my master browser? Or do I even have one?

Just disable the windows service 'Computer Browser" to ignore the error. The service only exists for legacy reasons.

Thank you very much. My Isp and computer manufacturer had no clue what this was and what it meant. I wish my big problem was this easy.
