Take a look at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/239869 re: NTLM2 authentication. To implement NTLM2, you add a key  To remove NTLM2 authentication, you should be able to just remove the key.

Thank you thinkpad_user for your answer it solved the problem completely. But if you allow to me correct the "key" part to "regword" that would make it easier for people who might watch this solution. Simply delete the LM compatibility regword value, the one in the right pane, and that's it, your Network Security: Lan Manager Authentication Level is back to "not defined".
Again thank you so much for your help.
