At the very top of internet explorer(box with the minimize-maximize-close
tabs) my name appears after the web page; is this normal?

'Normal'? no - but not harmful in and of itself, and not a security risk.

It's one of the possibilities of Branding.
Look here for more info

perhaps one of your family/friends/users thought you might appreciate a
personalised IE interface??

OTOH, it's always possible that this is merely a symptom of something
deeper - although I'm not aware of any malware that does this.
