    Speaking with a colleague, she tells me there is one with the Win2K Reskit. You can specify the combination type you want -- upper case, lower case, number, special character -- and min character length.

    Perhaps someone here with the kit might have the full name of the app.

    I have to agree with Info Tech Geek. I searched through my 2k resource kit and found nothing related to a pword generator.

    This link seems to have a pretty good pword generator that works with all versions of windows. Check it out.

    I though I saw one at one time too... but I don't use it, so I can't find it.

    There are plenty of free ones though... You can even get them for your handhelds for generating random passwords on the go!

    But... I could have swore that there is one in the win2k res kit...
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    Thanx for the responses, but the item I am trying to find is the one built into Win2K or part of the Resource Kit. There is one and I really need to find it for a security project I am working on. Any help is greatly appreciated. IT IS OUT THERE... CAN YOU HELP ME FIND IT?

    hmmm...not a generator, but a method to reset the p/w that works with ME/2000/XP....

    Windows XP's Forgotten Password Wizard helps create a Password Reset Disk that you can use to gain access to your computer if you forget your password.

    There are different steps, depending on your computer's connection to the network and the type of account you have. For example, follow these steps if your computer is on a workgroup and you have an administrator
    account:

    1. Open Control Panel and the User Accounts tool.
    2. Click your account.
    3. Within Related Tasks, select Prevent A Forgotten Password.
    4. Follow the instructions provided by the wizard.

    If you have a limited account, simply skip step 2 in the instructions above.

    If your computer is on a domain, perform these steps:

    1. Log off.
    2. Press [Ctrl][Alt][Delete].
    3. Click Change Password.
    4. Select the local computer in the Change Password dialog box.
    5. Click Backup.
    6. Follow the instructions provided by the wizard.

    When you log in to this computer that's on a domain and receive a Logon Failed error message, just click the Reset button to launch the Password Reset Wizard. If this computer is on a workgroup, you'll see the message Did You Forget Your Password? Click Use Your Password Reset Disk to launch the Password Reset Wizard.

    Keep in mind that the Password Reset Disk only works on the computer on which it was created. In addition, within a domain environment, the Password Reset Disk will only allow you to gain access to the local computer. You'll still have to ask your domain administrator to change your domain password in order to regain access to the network

    It isn't paranoia when you KNOW they're out to get you...
