    hi,


    I've read this article
    http://www.cxo.eu.com/news/password-protected/ and
    I want really strong password for my web and Windows 7 accounts.
    But how to create a strong password?

    '6ghud3' is probably strongest password I've invented :rolleyes:

    Aside from using letters and numbers, for the letters you can use upper and lower case combinations such as 6gHUd3. Also you could use 8 or 9 characters to make it more difficult to figure out. You may also be able to use the Special Symbols above the Numeric Keys such as these [email protected]#$%^&* in combination with the Alpha Numeric symbols.

    The loger the password using a combination of Alpha/Numeric characters not ussing adjacent keys or double letters/numbers the better up to the limit imposed by the website.

    There are various password generators. I use Mil Shield. It is a cool program that entirely protects your privacy and can generate unbreakable passwords for Digg, Yahoo, Twitter.....many other accounts.

    Also putting your only special character or capital letter/ number as the first or last character reduces the time to break the password....

    A format of something like P4$$Wor5 would be good, and 8 characters really should be the minimum length IMHO.

    P4$$Wor5 is a good password but Download.com for instance does not allow symbols like $$. Only letters and underscores.

    I've read many articles, bro. Kaspersky, right is best antivirus in the world. As for secure passwords I use Mil Shield too. Especially for Yahoo and MySpace.
