Operating System Version: windows xp pro
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages:

under : my computer-->computer name-->change-->more-->dns suffix and netbios computer name--> primary dns suffix of this computer,

and also under : LAN properties-->TCP/IP properties-->advanced-->dns-->dns suffix for this connection,

the name "" is present.
how does the word go into those places?
should i delete the word and leave those spaces blank?
when i deleted the word from my computer properties, the full computer name is "user-abcdef7g."
is the dot at the end of the name normal? or how can i get rid of it?
what if i delete all instances of in my registry?

I would remove '' as dns suffix if that domain is not yours. Could have been added by a trojan. I would run an up to date antivirus scanner and a spyware remover

Free online anti virus scanner

Also the dot at the end of the computer name is only displayed on the Computer Name property page and is not actually part of the computer name. If you click on the "Change" button you will see that the name doesn't have the dot.
