It definitely is not an indication that your computer is being attacked. It
has to do with how Microsoft computers collect and distribute the browse
list which is what you see when you view My Network Places which is the job
of the Master Browser. Apparently another computer believes it should be the
Master Browser and an election is being forced. This often happens if a
computer with a newer or server operating system is being started up and
connected to the network. For instance if you have a Windows 98/ME/2000
computer that is Master Browser and you startup an XP computer the XP
computer will want to be the Master Browser. --- Steve

thanks for the info Steve.

I have another issue that still concerns me with the "Owner" account. While
this accoutn doesn't show up on the account manager it does still show up
when I look at the system properties under the user profiles. It also shows
this user as signing on in the following event:

Description:
A provider, OffProv11, has been registered in the WMI namespace,
Root\MSAPPS11, to use the LocalSystem account. This account is privileged
and the provider may cause a security violation if it does not correctly
impersonate user requests.

I cannot access the Owner account to delete it of to limit it's privileges.
Is this a problem and if so, what can I do?
