Check out SourceForge.net


It is a great place for OpenSource software. On the left hand side there is a search feature that allows you to search the large amount of projects that are on the site.

I personally use KeePass Password Safe. It sounds like you may have used it as well. I have not had any prblems and the administrator of the project on SourceForge is pretty good at posting bug fixes. You may want to check it out again. I have found it the perfect solution to all my password needs. If it still does not float your boat, type in "passwords" in that search feature on SourceForge.net and at least 20 projects should come up.

Hope this helped

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
