    If it's for password encryption, have you considered using DPAPI? That can encrypt data so that only that user can decrypt it (available in Win2k+ only, though).

    If you're using .Net, .Net 2.0 has built-in DPAPI support with the ProtectedData class. If you're using .Net 1.1 Google around a bit, there's a ton of DPAPI wrappers available.

    Thanks a lot! You saved me a day Wink
