Do you mean adding extra xxxxx to password, if so that is what xp does, its an encryption as far as I know.

If you mean it shows more ***** than thier is on the real password it's not XP hides your real password and shows more to stop people from guessing what it is

This used to happen to me quite frequently when I used Tiscali as my ISP.The log on would fail and I would get a message that my log on details were incorrect and to check my password etc.

Changed to Virgin about a year ago and it has not happened since!.
