    X-Cleaner free has a password generator in the program. Covers from 6 up to 20 random characters. I don't know if 20 characters is enough for you, but I find it useful on occasion. http://www.xblock.com/download-freeware.shtml

    Any Password is an easy-to-use tool that lets you store and arrange all your passwords, user IDs, and related information in a tree form. The program saves this information in encrypted files which can be protected by a password.

    Password Safe, an excellent open source password database, also has the ability to generate them randomly. Might be worth a test run...

    I think I'd go along with Zhen-Xjell's suggestion, too, since Bruce Schneier is absolutely rabid about security (gotta love that!).

    Here's the link:
