    if you look at MSCONFIG, SYSTEM.ini tab, [password lists] section... mine still says *.pwl but i ran a search and did not find anything... wierd... must be encrypted somehow.

    wierd... system.ini says it is in c:\windows\pwls\*.pwl

    but search doesnt find it and there is now pwls folder in windows directory. not a hidden system folder either, i unchecked that in the folder options along with hidden files.

    definately wierd...

    cool, i would hope they would make it more secure on the NT type platform than they would in 9x platforms.
