Do you mind when people ask to use your computer? I have a friend that won't let anyone even TOUCH his computer. Not because he is worried about someone find his pr0nz but just because he's an asshole, while still being a pretty cool guy.

I'm not very worried about people going onto my computer. I delete history and whatnot every time I use my computer. But if I trust the person I allow them. If I'm a bit skeptical I might check what their doing now and then.

Anyways, are you anal about people using your computer? Don't care, hate it, etc. Poll coming.

I don't care, as I always log out and let them use the guest account.

There is SOME stuff I don't want them to find. >_>

I don't mind as long as they don't change or mess with anything. I've lent my computer to friends when we're doing group work and they need to use a particular piece of software or something, but it IS a personal machine and I take great pains to organise it and structure everything about the machine to how I want. If people want to use it, fine, but I appreciate if they don't mess with my working environment.

I barely like people fooling with anything I own, drives me batty. And being 16, my friends will all update my Facebook status with: "I love little boy peen. Yum yum yum."

Thankfully my friends aren't inconsiderate idiots. Except the one I mentioned in the OP. He's smart as hell, in terms of "book smarts". But he can be completely stupid in terms of "life" or socially, etc.

I don't really mind people using my computer as long as i'm relatively close, but i feel like punching them if they start dropping crumbs all over the keyboard or wipe their nose with their hand and spread it all over the mouse...

My guitar is another story though, left to me it would be behind a foot of bulletproof glass.

My brother will play games on my pc when I'm not on it for a long time. However that's all he can do. I don't trust anyone when it comes to browsing. My other pc was used by my cousin once and he had installed a stupid toolbar on one of my browsers.

I run a tweeked out freaked out version of Ubuntu Linux

The reason I don't let people use my computer as other than a guest account. Which most people find horribly restrictive (which it is) sorry I"m not going to let someone go to malware farm and infect my machine. I use a white list not on the white list sucks to be you doesn't it

Basically it amounts to anyone who isn't me most likely can't get it to work at all or will mess something up. That would take hours maybe even day to fix

Not really, but I won't let them borrow it for an extended time. I'm fine if they need it to do some homework or check something, but don't use my laptop to chat with your friends on facebook (unless you have a hot friend, then you better introduce me ) and fap to your own laptop.

I HATE it when people use my computer. Not because I'm hiding anything, but there's a reason why I haven't gotten any major viruses in years. I have everything set just perfectly and I don't need people mucking that up.

I absolutely hate it. I have to hover over them when they use it. I don't know what sites they visit and I don't like cleaning up viruses that I don't know where they came from. I don't mind getting viruses myself much, but I hate when others **** up my shit. And if something were to popup or they were to click on something I wouldn't agree with, it could really effect my computer. I don't know if they trust that they really won that new iPad 2 or not.
#35
I'd let a friend use it to look something up or check email when I'm in the room, but I'd never loan it to someone (it's also a bit difficult as I currently have a desktop).

Precisely! "Right click hide" and "Ctrl+Shift+P" are your friends people!

OT: I'll let my friends use it, I don't mind. And no one asks to borrow it because that would take effort.

I'm ok with them using it most of the time, but I prefer they don't.





I have mine password protected, mostly because I don't want my family members using it without asking. Every computer they touch tends to get viruses or something.

I paid for my ****ing pc, so it's ****ing mine so gtfo.

The PC has been the source of much knowledge and escapism for me, to me it's value is insurmountable.

As for people using it, trusted friends - sure why not. But letting them riffle through anything and everything? Why would i let them do that? As i said the PC is more a less extension of myself, it contains many memories like myself. And it's not like i'd just let anyone pick and chose what to go through in my head.
