Hello All:

Does anyone know from where WinXPP gets the user name that it displays on
the Start Menu?

I would like to know as in my new PC (on a corporate LAN) it changes
randomly between my Windows login ID and my actual name! Any idea how to
stop *that*?

Thanks in advance!

Rajesh,
I am also on a corporate LAN - XP Pro SP1. Same thing with username on Start
Menu. It starts with my full name and at some point during the day it changes
to my user id. My account is also not listed where Rich suggested. Should we
add our user? I'm afraid to try that. I have not been able to find where that
info is coming from or how to control it.
Please post back if you find anything.
