here is the code I am using
Function GetUserName() As String

    If TypeOf My.User.CurrentPrincipal Is Security.Principal.WindowsPrincipal Then

        ' The application is using Windows authentication.

        ' The name format is DOMAIN\USERNAME.

        Dim parts() As String
        parts() = Split(My.User.name, "\")

        Dim username As String
        username = parts(1)

        Return username

    Else

        ' The application is using custom authentication.

        Return My.User.Name

    End If
