From within my MFC program I need to get the company
name.  I know how to get the username with the function
GetUserName().  How do I get the Company Name?  I could
not find a function like GetCompanyName().

There is no such an information as Company Name. Use name is the name use used to logon but use is not required to specify company name

I assume you are talking about the Company Name that Windows asks for when you install it and displays in the My Computer properties and many other places.  It is stored in the registry at:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\

in the RegisteredOrganization value.
