Are user passwords encrypted?

This was a question that was recently asked in a support ticket and it is a very good one.  For those of us who are concerned about security, this is very important. Rest assured though, the service password is not stored in the filesystem. When the service is created is it passed to the Service Control Manager where it is hashed and stored in the SAM.
