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:
---------------------------------------------------
H:\>reg query /?

Command-line registry manipulation utility version 1.05.
Copyright Microsoft Corporation 1997.  All rights reserved.

REG QUERY RegistyPath [\\Machine] ["String"] [/S] [/size] [/list]

  RegistryPath  [ROOTKEY\]Key[\'ValueName']
    ROOTKEY     [ HKLM | HKCU | HKCR | HKU | HKCC ]
                Optional.  When omitted HKLM is assumed.
    Key         The full name of a registry key under the selected ROOTKEY.
    ValueName   The value, under the selected Key, to query.
                Optional.  When omitted all keys and values under the Key
                are listed.
                Enclose ValueNames that containg the \ character in single
                quotes.
  Machine       Name of remote machine - omitting defaults to current machine.
                Only HKLM and HKU are available on remote machines.
  /S, /s        Queries all subkeys.

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".
