Recommendations on Password Management

Hello,

About a week ago my PC was infected with some form of key logger trojan.  The trojan learned my FTP password for one of my website.  It then planted malicious code on my site in the form of i frames that pointed to their bogus sites.  I primarily use Firefox and I use WS_FTP Pro for FTP.  I have about 40 usernames/passwords stored in Firefox (but nothing for banks, credit cards, etc.).  

I have heard of different options to manage passwords securely.  I am looking for advice on how to better safeguard all of my passwords.  Kapersky just came out with a package.  Any thoughts on it?  I look forward to your suggestions.  My hope is I can get opinions from a couple of experts.  Thanks!

P.S. My computer sits behind a Juniper networks hardware firewall, I run F-Prot AV on all my systems as well as SpyBot.  I am installing Malwarebytes as a second level of protection.

Don't run as an admin 1st and foremost, it's just as good if not better than all AV/Anti-Spyware combined:

Second try the PasswordSafe from the Bruce Schneier: http://passwordsafe.sourceforge.net/

hi.. you can try out 2 popular Firefox add ons ..

1. LastPass Password Manager 1.66.0   : On install this add on will encrypt and upload all your saved Passwords and Login's to the lastpass servers, eventually deleting all locally saved password list. Please visit the link for more details https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/8542

2. Xmarks Bookmark and Password Sync 3.5.10   this is similar addon , but this add on maintains a local copy of passwords and bookmarks on your system, hence may be regarded as less secure. This add on however also backs up your Bookmarks and passwords remotely and seamlessly.

I hope this info was  helpful...all the best
Bye
