Computer browser in Windows 7?

Discussion in 'Windows 7' started by Yousuf Khan, Mar 31, 2010.

    In earlier versions of Windows there was a utility called browstat.exe
    available for download for determining computer browser problems. Is
    this still available for Win 7 or has it been replaced by something else?

    Specifically, I'd like to determine which computer on my network has
    been elected master browser.

    Okay, I guess there were no takers on this question. Anyways, I found
    the solution on my own, so if others need to look for this solution in
    the future, I'll just put the link for it here.

    Thanks for posting the solution. I've never needed this information
    myself, but who's to say I won't find a need for it next week?

    It's used when you need to fix 8003 or 8004 error events in the system
    log. Here's an example:

    These problems occur on workgroup computers. I needed to find out if
    there were any other computers were trying to become the master browser
    in my network.
