Windows 7: how to delete domain from computer name

how to delete domain from computer name

Greetings all! Hope everyone had a great holiday!

I have a question...

Some time ago after installing Windows 7 on my computer, I added a domain name (don't ask me why - I was just fiddling around ). Now, I cannot delete it. From my dos commands, when I do a pathping, I get and I want to get rid of the domain part of it since no one else has that domain.

We all log in here on our computers not from any domain controller. We share an Internet pipe and a simple file server.

I have tried going in through Computer|Properties|, under computer name - 'Change Settings' under "To rename this computer click Change" [Change], and under [More] where it states a DNS suffix, it is blank.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance, and 'Happy New Year!'
