screen ssaver password



using XP1 Pro. Is there any way to NOT display the username when a
deactivated screen saver prompts for password? Maybe even display dots
or asterisks for user name instead?

Actually there is a way if you're a programmer like I am.

You could use the SendMessage API passing the handle of the Edit box & the
password character to it. Its the opposite way to remove the asterix from
the password dialog where you send 0 (NULL) to the edit box instead.

I hope this helps,
