Ooo! Oooo! Ooooo!  This is my **favorite** hack!

Use a resource editor (one comes with VC++) and open 
the mprserv.dll library in it.  You must edit the 
file when running Windows NT as Windows 9x does not 
support writing change to a binary file.  Now disable
the DOMAIN field in the Windows network logon dialog.
This will prevent changes except by modifying the 
registry settings.

Hope this helps,
