It might help if you gave us more info, what did you update from and
to ?
How are you running Samba
Anything else you think relevant

As for your users changing their habits, you are in charge, if you tell
them they have to change, they will change.

You also really need to update your computers, XP has been EOL for a
few years now and 7 will go EOL before long.
