At a place where I connect via wireless to their internal domain.  To do so I have to prefix the login with the domain like:   DOMAIN\Username

However Windows 7 prefixes my computer name domain before it like:  ComputerName\Domain\Username

Thus it won't connect.  How can I turn this off in Windows 7?
