What type of software are you looking for? Or are you requesting suggestions? What programming skills do you have?

Then I suggest you take a look at KeePass 2.X. KeePass is a password manager written in C#.
You can download it here (binary and source code): http://keepass.info/download.html
Make sure you take version 2.X, and not 1.X (1.X is not written in C#).

FYI: I will not be able to help you with questions regarding KeePass, I've never looked at the source code.

It's C#, you just have to open the solution with Visual Studio.

Actually, didn't you say you knew C#? Did you find the solution file in the ZIP file?

It looks like you download the already built version of the program. Your going to want to scroll to the bottom and download the source code.
If I am helping you and I do not respond within 24 hours, please send me a PM. :)

Thank you for the help.Last question,should I use Microsoft Visual C# 2005 or .net framework SDK to run the code.I have neither so I will have to download,that is the reason for my asking.
Thank You a TON :)

Well, it seems that it is a Visual Studio Solution so you can open it with Visual Studios. Visual C# 2005 will be sufficient in opening it I would guess. Now if it needs the .Net Framework SDK, I do not know if it uses it or not. But I believe windows comes with it installed.
If I am helping you and I do not respond within 24 hours, please send me a PM. :)
