Windows 7: Is Your Password Strong ?

10 Apr 2010   #41

Windows 7 Professional x64

Mmm, I don't know if it will help but having not so English characters in passwords.
egs. use a word in a language you're trying to learn. This way its not so much of an extreme, although its not so much of an easy target.

ödeläggelse (swe) / then replace letters with numbers maybe ?
äggkläckningsmaskin (swe) (Even I had to dictionary that one)

Well it's all I do anyways. (Even though in the end half my passwords are just English words now with numbers like everyone else) but I only make strong passwords for the sites that matter, or which contain information about me.

Win7-ULT-x64-(All 5 PC's, 3 DSKTP's, 2 LPTP's)
Secure entry (if any)...

Well when it comes down to it, there are ways around everything, ways to get into everything if one wants to, but the good must outweigh the bad at least for me to do it, and if it's illegal then that's all the more incentive for me to abide by the laws of the state and not wind up in jail. Even retina scanning could be intruded on if you had access to the source of the scanner now couldn't it? or maybe a eyeball replicator? LOL Just kidding so anyway have fun all.

P.S. Having a high functioning malware monitor such as Avast v4 or 5 running is a good deterent for those keyloggers that get silently installed on Your PC, because if a keylogger (that You dont want) is installed and active all your keypresses can be sent to a remote server and they can use that info later... So yeah password entry is quite volatile at times... CheerzZz!

Ahhhhh....No. I am not typing my password in there for a check. Now Microsoft knows my password. You have to be kidding.
You are kidding, I hope WindowsStar.
Yes it is a joke, but also being serious too, people should use caution. I would hope people don't go to random websites and type in their password for testing. I could setup a testing website and then capture everyone’s passwords. Social Engineering is the best way to gain access to whatever you want.
