Password Creator is a program for generating passwords. This program is really intended for network administrators and internet providers but it can also be used to generate single passwords on the fly using command line options in Windows 95 shortcuts.

The main screen is where the generated list will appear and is where you can set many of your options. The options include Number of Passwords, Number of Characters, Seed (these also have a Random check box beside them), Use (Numbers, Letters, or Both), Case (Upper, Lower, of Both), Special Characters (displays them), Select the types of characters to use (NO Special, ONLY Special, INCLUDE Special, Customer Characters, All ASCII, and HEXidecimal), Exclude Characters (up to 20 characters), Combinations, % Complete, and Copied To Clipboard.

You can use this program to generate up to 1,000 passwords at a time with lengths up to 20 characters. It also does duplicate password checking, double character checking and sequential character checking. There is also a double and triple password option. You can copy single passwords or entire password lists to the clipboard. You can print entire password lists including possible combinations and a notes section. You can also save password lists as text files so you and import them to other applications.

There is a lot of ways to customize this program to suit your needs and you can save more then one configuration too. This program is very easy to use and very useful if you need to create secure passwords quickly. The shareware version is restricted to 15 uses at 2 minute intervals.
