HDI... Install a "Password Safe" on Windows

Introduction

Manage your passwords by using "Password Safe" (https://pwsafe.org/). Password Safe allows you to safely and easily create a secured and encrypted user name/password list. This allows users to store all passwords in a single "safe" (password database). With Password Safe all you have to do is create and remember a single "Master Password" of your choice in order to unlock and access your entire user id/password list.

Note: Password Safe protects information in the “safe” with the Twofish encryption algorithm.
