If you know VBScript, you can do the following:

UserName = shell.RegRead ("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\DefaultUserName")


Or here is what microsoft has in its utilities:

Richie, that won't give you user names for the logged in users on said machines which is what I understood to be the requirement. Of course if RanjiniPraba never comes back to this thread we can never know for sure!

Maybe "close" was not the right word, i meant "maybe related to".
