  • Username on My Computer Icon

    Does anyone know how to change the variables on the My Computer icon on server 2008?

    On my server 2003 machines I have the My Computer label showing the server name and the current user logged onto it as shown in this example:

    Unfortunately it doesn’t work on server 2008

      Cheers for that, I changed the owner permission on the following key to the domain admin, then allowed write access.

      This will then allow you to change the string
