Screensaver password

I'm doing a screensaver - and I'd like to use the same password routine that standard Windows screensavers use. So that users won't have to set password options again, just because they're using my screensaver.
 
If it's not possible to call that specific routine, another option would be to read the values in the register ('Is password used?' and 'What is it?') but the password is encrypted. Maybe there's a standard Windows encryption routine that could be used in order to encrypt and decrypt the password ?

Hoping for an answer

Hi again Esben,

I have sent you the source of another screen saver I have just found on my hard disk. It handles correctly the password. As I told you later, I will use this routine within 1 or 2 weeks to modify my own blobsaver.
