I'd like to change every 3-4, 7-8, 11-12, 15-16... character in a line of output into two X's.
abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz  -->abXXefXXijXXmnXXqrXXuvXXyz
Get-CimInstance Win32_OperatingSystem |FL
SystemDirectory : C:\windows\system32
Organization    : Example.com
BuildNumber     : 7601
RegisteredUser  : Example User
SerialNumber    : 00392-918-5000002-888888
Version         : 6.1.7601
Becomes:
