You could use BGInfo to display system / user info as a wallpaper: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897557.aspx

Hope it helps.

BGInfo can also be used to display an icon in the system tray, that when clicked will show a popup with the information you're after - I prefer the method above, as it doesn't involve the users having to do anything whatsoever to see the info, but it depends whether you mind having this info stamped on the desktop background or not.

It can be fully customised to show whatever information you want it to, and the position can be changed to almost anywhere on the desktop...

Hmmmm. I've been searching high and low for something that will allow you to do this, but no real joy. The best I can get is for text to appear next to the clock, in the system tray, as shown in the screenshot.

It's strange as I've been looking hard, and you'd think if it was possible, I would've found something by now...

Still, I'll keep looking...
