Password Depot is a powerful and extremely user-friendly tool for the management of all your passwords. It uses the latest security algorithms such as BlowFish and Rijndael to encrypt your files. Its file shredding method complies with the directives DOD 5220.22-M of the US Department of Defense and allows you to fully destroy files created with the programme. User-friendly interface similar to Windows Explorer allows for the efficient navigation through your password lists.

By far the best and most secure password manager I found. I think it is wrong to compare this tool with freeware like keepass... Maybe the UI looks similiar, but Password Depot leaves no traces of the passwords in RAM! Unlike keepass and other clones it includes protection from keylogging and protects your clipbaord from spyware.
There is a server module, it works with internet files and USB sticks. Good support and updated on regular basis (already vista compatible, etc.)
If you dont want to buy it, you can use it as freeware.

I see that the version shown above is an older version than the recently introduced version 2 which I'm using and reviewing here. It's a nifty program and is freeware as long as you don't need more than 20 stored passwords. I love this little gem as it incorporates rock solid 256 bit encryption and allows for a 19 symbol master password. I like to keep my important passwords complex and change them often and as a result, I used to end up having to write them down. This lockbox allows you to set up URLs, related user names and passwords and when you put the program into use you fire up IE to load your desired site with one simple click. You then drag and drop your user name and password and click to enter the secure site. I find this program invaluable for bill paying and online banking. It's a real time saver. It should go without saying that if you're going to keep a program like this on your computer, you should have a strong security system--having said that, I highly recommend it.
