Are you protective of your computer?

I notice whenever someone wants to use my laptop I really have a problem letting them... and if I do I'm wanting to pick them up and throw them out the door lol. And that's just my laptop; my desktop is completely off-limits except for my good freinds. Maybe it's because I've done so much work on these things, building my desktop and what not, but does anyone else get like that?

My computer is a family one unfortunately, however i keep all my data and work stored on an external hard-drive which is off limits to everyone without my strict supervision. I find that with the family use computer that i hate for anyone else to use it. My little brother goes on the net and screws round in all sorts of things, including restricted sites (ya get it) picking up viruses and cluttering the disc space with crap, slowing the computer. everytime anyone else uses the computer and i go on after them i usually end up having to restart it, i'm assuming because of user switching problems.
No matter who it is if someone else uses the computer they stuff it up.

yup im really overprotective of my computer. nobody except [not inclusing me of course] my mom and sister have used it, once. i never eat or drink near it. heck when i leave my apartment i manually lock it and use encrypted password protection. although i download mega amounts of data i keep it locked down as much as possible.

The troubles are that I never have "standard" things, so, when s.o. wants to use my compie, I always have to be close to give tips ^_^' ...

Moreover, I don't like to lend my laptop, bkuz it's old, and I prefer breaking it myself rather than it being broken...

For the desktop, I don't really care, anyway, I have no critical data ;) !

A friend of mine once loaned his laptop to someone cause they needed to type a paper. It was returned later with pr0n on it.

He never loaned his laptop to this guy again, needless to say.

As for me, well, I have the hard drives and the DVD burner sitting outside the computer, connected only by the IDE and power cables. I'm too lazy to put it back together, and I keep threatening to roll over it with my rolling chair.

So much for being protective of my comp. I'm having a hard time protecting it from ME.

I'm totally protective of me computer, It drives me up the wall when someone asks to use it. I'd rather fix the family desktop than offer up my laptop. But then- I guess it comes from having a bad experience with letting people use it before. Not only do I find it an invasion of privacy with all the questions of what this and that is, but my siblings detroyed my other laptop. The monitor was literally in pieces.

I don't like other people using my desktop, but I don't mind people using the laptop because it's not really mine, I'm just the one who uses it the most. My desktop is off-limits to everyone but my dad and good friends I trust with machines.

People can use mine but only if I'm there to see what they're doing. I won't let anyone use it if I'm not in the room. So yeah I'm pretty protective lol.

I got a pretty good firewall and anti-virus system, so my friends can use my pc as much as they like. iIuse theirs all the time, so it's only fair if I return the favor.

I use Linux so I don't need to be overprotective. Nobody but me can do any damage to it, and all my personal files are writable only by me.

I'm only protective against spyware, adware, and viruses. I don't want any spammers or other jerks ruin my computer's functions. I have tons of pictures and music and I don't want anything to happen to them. But other than that, I'll let my friends use it.

I don't care who it is but if they mess with it I will beat them to a bloody pulp.
I give them fair warning too, No one is allowed to touch this comp I'll let you use my other ones but this comp is not to be used by anyone but me!

I also do tell them I would go bizerk if anything happens to my comp.

I used to let other use my computer, they never do any more. It drives them crazy that I can track down where they've been with it. They are pretty computer illiterate, (I'm only spelling impaired)

But that suits me just fine, now my computer can have a rest when I'm not home.

I don't like other people using my computer because...well, I don't know why, it's just a thing I have a problem with.
