Question for you guys

I want to be able to encrypt my login screen, is there any way to do this?

I thought this would be the good place to put this as it is involved in my current setup. It also appears that I can't delete my own posts while editing so you should enable that, just saying. Move it to where-ever you want.

Bump! If none of you know how to do it, that's fine; go ahead and lock it.

Well the password precisely but if there's more to it, I want in on that information.

Oh, is it? Go ahead and delete this then. I thought it wasn't.

NT class operating systems have never stored login passwords. When a password is created Windows performs a non-reversible mathematical operation on it and stores the result. When you login the same operation is dome on the entered password and the results compared. If they match you are logged in.
