I checked your IP address and it seems it is registered with the Internet Service Provider Park Tv & Electronics Inc. Are you using Park TV Cable's Internet ? Is this a static IP address assigned for you ?

No I was not using the Service Park TV. It was my home computer. You have not answered my question yet. I weant to know what Windows shows I was using on this IP address.
Expert:  Jins M. N. replied 1 year ago.

Let me explain, an IP address is given to the user by Internet Service Provider (ISP). There are two kinds of such IP address Static and Dynamic. A static IP address will never change from the assigned one and no other one can use the same IP. But a dynamic IP address will change after each shutdown of the modem. When modem starts, it automatically acquire an IP address and it will different each time. So a dynamic IP address can be used by different users on different times.

Now regarding your question, there are tools to find the operating system details and computer details which the IP is using and the same is recording to the logs of ISPs. There are tools available for public to find the system details of the IP currently using. But to know the details of a past time we should check the logs of ISP who providing that particular IP address. But no ISPs will allow public to check it. Legal agencies can ask the details from ISP and can check the info, as a common man we can't do it.

I know this is not the answer that you want to hear but unfortunately this is the truth.
