Asus Eee PCs run on the Windows XP SP2 operating system. Accounts in Windows XP SP2 can easily be password-protected, but the same password can just as easily be forgotten. At moments like this, you'll wish you had chosen a password that is both secure and easy to remember, or kept a record of it in a private place.
