Quite a few things ;-)

I understand that you have to use XP, but you don't have to use NTLM,
haven't you heard of 'wanacry' ?
Go here and read it: http://www.imss.caltech.edu/node/396

Then you can remove these lines:

    lanman auth = yes
    ntlm auth = yes

Why have you got these lines ? it isn't an AD DC

    dns forwarder =
    allow dns updates = nonsecure

Is 'winbind' running ? if it isn't you do not need these lines:

    idmap config * : backend        = tdb #
    idmap config * : range          = 1000000-1999999

If it is running, they are not set up correctly.

I would change 'name resolve order = host' to 'name resolve order =
wins host bcast'

I would try this for the profiles:

    path = /exports/profiles/
    read only = no
    create mask = 0600
    directory mask = 0700
    browseable = no
    csc policy = disable

Also, if '/exports/profiles/' is an NFS share, I would stop using it.

Finally, are you aware that 'public' is a synonym for 'guest ok' ?
Where you have this in '[printers]'

    public = yes
    guest ok = no

You are allowing guest access and then immediately stopping it.
