i have heard some of my guildies say that they actually have a text document saved with just their password in it. They highlight the password, copy, and paste [ctrl + v] it into the password box at the login screen. the idea is that a keystroke program intended to steal your account only logs the copy and paste you did. sounded like a really cool and simple idea, just thought i'd see if people agree...

Quite simply, that doesn't work. Keyloggers can read your clipboard as easily as they can read what you actually type.
