To display your Username and Computer Name on the ‘My Computer’

a) Use regedit to locate [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTCLSID{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D} rename LocalizedString to LocalizedString.Old. I advice this step in case anything goes wrong and you want to revert to how it was.

b) Create a new VALUE type Expand_SZ name it LocalizedString Set the value of LocalizedString to %Username% at %Computername%
Press F5 to refresh the ‘My Computer’, there is no need to logoff and certainly do not reboot.
