Recommend a Password Manager for XP??

by Georgia in MS / September 20, 2008 12:28 AM PDT

I have used Norton/Symantec for years. I also had their Password Manager from 2004. LOVED the program. After reading so much about how terrible Norton is, I decided to change to Kaspersky. To install Kaspersky, I used Norton's complete removal tool. This also removed the Norton Password program. When I tried to reinstall Password Manager, of course, I had exceeded the number of installs allowed. Trying to get thru to Symantec is a nightmare to see if they will give me a new product key for a program they no longer support (but locked out new installs - grr). They no longer support it because of the Identity Safe they have in the Internet Security program.

I have been using RoboForm for three months, but it is not as good as Norton's password manager (nor can I import my Norton PM into RoboForm). I wish Kaspersky would include a password manager as part of their system, but at the same time, I think I like a standalone program so I don't run into this problem again.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a PM other than RoboForm? I have four computers that I use a PM on.

My advice

I would recommend using Handy Password. The interface is very friendly and the program does the job rather well.

Thanks for the info. Cnet/download.com is my trusted source when I am searching for something. RoboForm does things that Norton did not do and vice versa. Now it has become a point of interest in comparing programs. I'll have to look at Handy now!

You can find it here on download.com as well and it does all you are used in Norton, RoboForm - even more. Try it for free and you will see!

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?
