Run cmd.exe and type ' set ' at the prompt.
You'll get a whole bunch of "VAR=VALUE" strings printed. One of these will be USERNAME.

These (collectively) are called environment variables. All good languages at least have an API to access these variables.

In C for example, it would be char *user = getenv("USERNAME"); In Perl my $user = $ENV{"USERNAME"}; Since I dont know VBScript, you should be able to research the answer from here.
