Wes et al.

Could PINs, a secure passwords manager, including a powerful random
passwords generator be of any interest and help?

PINs is OSI Certified Open Source Software. It's freeware.

Platform: any 32-bit Windows (including XP)

For your convenience, please find below citations from the SW author's
web page:

"PINs is a free feature-rich Windows program for safe and comfortable
storing of any secure information like passwords, accounts, PINs etc.
PINs uses a secure 448 bit Blowfish algorithm to ensure the data are not
crackable. The password used for securing access to stored data is not
saved anywhere.

PINs does not require installation and does not need any special dlls,
drivers or system files which can mess up your system. This means that
PINs can run directly from floppy - including data files - without
installing anything. This is extremely useful if you wish to easily
access your data on other computers as well.
