Is the typing in of my domain admin password protected during adding a Windows 7 64-bit OS computer to the domain?

Almost all users within my company have key loggers installed on their computers. They use these key loggers at their own discretion to record their work throughout the day so that they can quickly go back and recover or look at past keyboard strokes.


I often need to go around to different user's computer and add their newly loaded Windows 7 64-bit OS to the Active Directory domain (see the screenshot).

I know that whenever CTRL-ALT-DEL is pressed (for a user to log onto the computer) that the keystrokes that the user then types in are safe and can't be captured by any key logger programs (or so Microsoft claims).

I just need to be sure that sure that the keystrokes that I enter while typing in my password won't be captured by any key logger programs.

So is the typing in of domain admin password protected during adding a Windows 7 64-bit computer to the domain (so that these keystrokes can't be captured by key logging programs)?
