Windows 7 Problem

Okay, since I know there are many people who are more computer savvy than me, I'll give it a post.

So, Joe got me a new laptop for Xmas. (Yea Joe!) I'm at the point where I want to move files off of our external hard drive (our network storage device where all my backups are) to the laptop and free up my XP machine for other uses.

The external drive requires a login and password. Windows 7 keeps adding the name of the laptop to the login (i.e. blue\login) and we can't get this machine to drop the Domain (the blue part) of the login.

Anybody have a clue?

TIA
