Default VB 2005 question, binary to text file conversion

hi, im using visual studio 2005 and currently creating a project in .net 2005.

the scenario ok the application is a quiz type application where a user can import questions and then save them to a data file (a text file).

now the problem is i would not like people to be able to view this data, is there some way to encyprt or convert the text file to an unreadable format, but yet still be readable by the application. Becuase the text file is then loaded and has all the questions for the quiz.

i have heard a few things about converting the text file to binary, but not sure if its the answer to my question.

anyways any helpwould be greatly appreciated
thanks
