Retrieve Logged Windows User From Window Service

mashirimashiri Posts: 4Member
I wish to retrive the name of the windows logged user from within a Windows service program executing using a System account. I tried the .net System.Security classes and the Win32 API GetUserName which retains 'System', but I need the actual windows loggedon user name.
Thank you in advance
