    I'm curious what logic made you post a VB question on a C++ board.

    Their syntax and characteristics are much, much, much different.

    Well unless you get lucky and someone knowledgeable can answer your question (which was not correctly asked anyway) you're out of luck getting an answer to a VB question in the C++ programming section of the C Board forum which itself is on CProgramming.com whose motto is "Your resource for C and C++".

    Use a bios password.

    Or write a program that can run after your kernel loads, along with some dependencies, but before the shell, and use C++ to make it do this:
    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <fstream>
    #include <string>
    
    main()
    {
        const char path[] = "C:\\conspicuous_text.txt";
        std::ifstream reader(path);
        std::string buf;
        reader >> buf;
    
        std::string input;
        do
        {
           std::cout << "What's the password?" << std::endl;
           std::cin >> input;
        } while(input != buf);
    }
    In fact, abandon Visual Basic altogether and start using this site. Fate hath brought you here.

    Aren't we getting ahead of ourselves here?
    Whilst what you want is doable (obviously), it's not newbie code by any means.

    If you want to be a good programmer, there's a long apprentiship to serve, where you learn the tools to allow you to make any program you want.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Ok, you are in luck...and I just need the default form (form1) and a single inputbox:
    Code:
    Private Sub Form_Load()
    Dim pass As String
    Dim another As Boolean
    
    another = True ' to keep it alive the loop
    
    
    While another = True ' loop it
    pass = InputBox("Password please") ' ask a password
    If pass = "poop" Then ' test if the user text is the correct one
        another = False ' then... we're done
    End If
    Wend
    End Sub
