    A great program (many here will agree is: Roboform

    thanks.ill look into it.

    seems it can be used with opera,but will probably work as a offline storage.

    No, I think it works with IE and FF only.

    A great free program, although not quite as automatic as roboform, is Keepass.

    yeah, i found keepass.

    A friend send me a trojan.bat disguised as it. posted about it in trojan section.

    anyways, dl it from the site and it looks good.

    Everything i wanted, and a plugin that lets it get saved to a backup location on another drive.

    That combined with a weekly backup of with retrospect should keep it safe enough

    in opera you shouldnt trust wand.dat to remember passwords.

    just use it as a nice feature, because it can get corrupted very easy.

    That,s ok for me as I don,t put my bank passwords etc in this one or any other one. I just remember them. I use it or forums and web mail only and even here I do remember themas well.

    Agreed Keepass is a great program ... the other worth mentioning is Password Safe. Less featured than Keepass but none the less an excellent program. The really nice feature of Keepass is the ability to use both a key file and a password to protect your data. Best of all both are free and opensource ... both are platform independant, so you can use either of them in Linux/Unix or Windows.

    My favorite password manager is a paid one, KEYPLOAD.
    http://www.dobysoft.com/products/keypass/index.html

    The main reason is it has the capability of adding as many fields as you need, and to script it as you need to peform automatic login.

    For me, the better.

    KeyWallet is my favourite
    http://www.keywallet.com/
    Does need installing, but can create random keys, and you can password protect the saved passwords too - also had web links for the keys :)
