This will help you modify the my computer icon label. You should be able to mod the string to get username as well:

You will have to delete the following key, if you had previously renamed it from the desktop:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}

It's ok to delete it, it will be recreated automatically if you rename the icon from the desktop again.
