I am using TripleDESCryptoServiceProvider for encrypting user
passwords in my program. but when this line executes

TripleDESCryptoServiceProvider oDES=new

I kid you not, it crashes and burns. But only on Win2k, not on WinXP.
I know the TripleDES wrapper, wraps unmanaged code, could it be that
the 2k machine needs a security update?
