When you use WINS Administrator (WINSADMN) to view the WINS database and your preferences are set to view both computer name and IP address, text in the Select Owner dialog box is overlapped.


This problem occurs because there is not enough space allocated for each of the fields displayed in the Select Owner dialog box.


To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows NT 4.0 or the individual software update. For information on obtaining the latest service pack, please go to:
For information on obtaining the individual software update, contact Microsoft Product Support Services. For a complete list of Microsoft Product Support Services phone numbers and information on support costs, please go to the following address on the World Wide Web:
