Password protection vs. encryption

Password protection does not actually encrypt data stored on PC.    Disk encryption will use an algorithm to scramble the data on PC - it becomes ciphertext. A PC that is just password protected is vulnerable to a dictionary predefined attack. The encryption key will not be stored in Windows but is instead on the disk.
