string fullname = System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent().Name.ToString();
string[] parts = fullname.Split(new string[] {@"\\"}, StringSplitOptions.None);
 
string sDomain = parts[0];
string sUser parts[1];

this will work (notice that I have to use double \\ for each one as '\' is the escape character in c#.

 I just thought of a cleaner way too, will post it in a second
string parseThis = "=\"CWB\\\\mxcupryk\"";
string[] split = parseThis.Substring(3, parseThis.Length - 3).Substring(0, parseThis.Length - 4).Split(new string[] { "\\\\" }, StringSplitOptions.RemoveEmptyEntries);
string sDomain = split[0];
string sUser = split[1];

better approach
string[] split = parseThis.Split(new string[] { "\\\\", "\"","=" }, StringSplitOptions.RemoveEmptyEntries);
string sDomain = split[0];
string sUser = split[1];

sUser  bombs {"Index was outside the bounds of the array."}

string fullname = System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent().Name.ToString();
string[] parts = fullname.Split('\\');
 
string sDomain = parts[0];
string sUser parts[1];

If I run the following, I get this exact output:

parsing: ="CWB\\mxcupryk"
sDomain=CWB
sUser=mxcupryk
string parseThis = "=\"CWB\\\\mxcupryk\"";
string[] split = parseThis.Split(new string[] { "\\\\", "\"","=" }, StringSplitOptions.RemoveEmptyEntries);
string sDomain = split[0];
string sUser = split[1];
//added for testing
Response.Write("parsing: " + parseThis + "<br />sDomain=" + sDomain + "<br />sUser=" + sUser);

or possibly change to this as the double / wont make a difference
string[] split = parseThis.Split(new string[] { "\\", "\"","=" }, StringSplitOptions.RemoveEmptyEntries);
string sDomain = split[0];
string sUser = split[1];

it looks like the value of the full name is CWB\mxcupryk (no =, no quotes).

In such a case, use this:
string fullname = System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent().Name.ToString();
string[] parts = fullname.Split('\\');
 
string sDomain = parts[0];
string sUser parts[1];
