hi!

is there a way to "activate" the password checkbox in the screensaver dialog by code?

i've a program that controls most of the screensaver's functions (like change it, or activate it, or disable it, etc) and the only thing left is the enable/disable of password (mostly for win nt or 2k)

any help will be apreciated

thanx a lot!!!
