In windows 7, I'm selected the option to allow saving of login credentials.

However, when I login to these remote sites, it tries to put my computer name first followed by the login name.

So let's say my first successful login is:

user_name password123

when I go back to remote in later, it will be saved as:

computer_name/user_name password123 and this will obviously fail.

Any idea how to fix this?

Put the computer or domain name in when you type in the username. If you don't specify one, the local computer name will be used.
