Simple Password Generator

If you ever find the need to create a random password there is actually a part of .NET that can do it for you. You can all it from PowerShell with the following 2 lines:

using assembly System.Web

The way this function works is pretty simple.

static string GeneratePassword(int length, int numberOfNonAlphanumericCharacters)

As you can see the first parameter is how long the password is and the second is how many non alphanumeric characters to use.
