Windows 7: Why user's name in System Info differs from my login name?

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit
Why user's name in System Info differs from my login name?

My apology if this question had been asked before.

I login as John (account type = Administrator) on my Win7 Home Premium. My computer System Name is HomePC.

When I launched the "System Information" via msinfo32.exe, why does it show the "User Name" as HOMEPC\user instead of HOMEPC\John?

Appreciate if somebody can shed some light. Thanks :)
