Ive been trying to do some security checks on my own computers, and i feel like a complete idiot here coming from using linux to asking about windows.. but..

im trying to view whats in my .pwl file to see how secure it is. I know it could just be renamed, but thats a different problem. I tried viewing it in notepad but its encrypted. is there a program i could use? id like to secure this computer a little better.. even for windows.

Thanks for the help.
