1 Solution
You have to use an API-call.
This should do the job:
* in a module, declare this function
Declare Function GetUserName Lib "advapi32.dll" Alias "GetUserNameA" (ByVal lpBuffer As String, nSize As Long) As Long

* in your code, put this:
    Dim lSize As Long
    Dim sUser As String    
    lSize = 100
    Dim lRC As Long

    sUser = String(lSize, 0)
    lRC = GetUserName(sUser, lSize)

* check if lRC <> 0
your username = Trim(Left(sUser, lSize - 1))
