Quick think of a password...

"Yeah, why not?"... "Erm...."

Now you hit that stumbling block. You can't think of just any password, it has to be secure. So instead of racking your brains and ending up with a headache, why don't you download a random password generator. Useful for people, like myself, who create systems that require predefined users and passwords.

One tool that tops my list is PC Tools Password Utilities. This tool gives you loads of parameters in building a complex password. Plus, if you do think of one, you can check how strong it is in this tool.

Forgetting passwords is rather annoying and this tool has a Password Revealer function to help you remember. Though it only works with Internet Explorer. Haven't got a need for it yet, but handy to have just in case.
