Hello AfrikanAdmin,
The next time you recieve that error message, go to Event Viewer (Start, Run, EVENTVWR) and check the System and Application logs. Look for an entry that says something like this:
"The system detected an address conflict for IP address 192.168.1.100 with the system having network hardware address 00:0C:41:9B:88:89".
If you find that message, then that hardware address will the be the address you will need to find; it will be the cause of the problem.

you may also want to check the connecting hardware...ip conflicts are for every device...if you slipped up and gave a router the same ip as your server..then that will give a conflict as well...

You would also be recieving that error message if something on your network was designated an IP outside the permitted range; ie: if your router permits 192.168.1.100-199 addresses and something on your network has a .99 or .200 address, then that would also cause the conflict.

If you don't want to check the IP on every machine then the easy way is to turn all the machines off at night and turn 1 on at a time in the morning and watch for the popup.
Have you added a new modem or router or is there more then 1 server.
