Secure Random Password Generator

This application helps by making up a secure, random password of a desired length for whatever purpose (harden your existing ebay, Amazon, gmail, and CodeGuru passwords; or register with yet another Web site requiring a password, create a new mail account, and so forth.).

Each time the 'Generate' button is clicked, the seed number for the random function is the number of milliseconds that have elapsed since Windows was started.

By default, characters in upper case, lower case, and digits are used for generation and you can easily add or exclude any characters to or from this set (such as common punctuation, special characters _ + / \$ %, and so on.), as desired.

The Copy button will copy the generated password to the Clipboard, so you can paste it into the input field with Ctrl+V.

MS VC++ 6.0 source code is included, so you can be absolutely sure that your new password is reasonably random and is not transmitted to anywhere in the background. Recompile your own generator from the sources if desired.
