I need to get user NT Name from client side. I tried using ActiveXObject but its not working in all the browser. Do you have any other solution to get the NT Name from client side.

Either you are using an authentication method and then you can get the user name on the server side or you don't and there is just no full proof way to get this information.
Edit: sometimes it's best to tell what is your final goal. Why would you like to get a client side user name if your site doesn't require any authentication method? If your site does have an authentication method make sure you need this information client
side (and if really needed you could send this information from the server side).

From your description, I'm not sure what do you mean about the NT time. Could you please explain more details about it?
I tried using ActiveXObject but its not working in all the browser.
As for this issue, the ActiveXObject object is a Microsoft extension and is supported in Internet Explorer only, not in Windows 8.x Store apps.
