I Hate Pointsec

Pointsec is this hard drive encryption thingy for Windows. It makes it so that if someone steals the hard drive, they can't access it since it's encrypted. Data protection and all that.

Yay.

The only problem is that Pointsec is both amazingly slow, and refuses to accept usernames and passwords typed faster than a single character a second.

Yes, that's right. Every time I boot the system (which, being a Windows system, is ridiculously frequently) I have to sit in front of it, slowly pressing one key after another, making sure not to accidentally type too fast.
