Hi there,

I am currently writing a CBT application which needs to capture the current logged in user. When I look at the Windos XP login screen it gives my full name is logged in as Domain\userid for example when the login screen appears I type in USERNAME JBT23 PASSWORD ********* it then logs me in but then displays my full name of John Brian Taylor is logged in as DOMAINNAME\JBT23. I would like to be able to access the full name but can't find any entries in the registry etc can anyone help ?

Thanks in advance

I suppose that info comes from the domain server.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
