    Agitating Tick

    Warning. Contents Are Toxic.

    I wish that that title was actually true for my computer so that people don't have the nerve to use it. I feel like they're violating my privacy. It's got too much of my personal stuff in it, so when anyone uses it, I watch them like a hawk so that they don't come across anything...

    I Can't Stand To Have....

    people using my computer. It's not that I have "personal stuff" on here. I just paid good money for it and don't want it to be broken. I've gone through many laptops because someone has dropped it or downloaded a virus or something stupid like that. I just don't want to have to...

    Uncomfortable

    I'm not a jealous person and when it comes to my PC, I am jealous of it and I'm uncomfortable for anyone to use it.  I don't directly say no but at the sametime, I'm not keen on the idea.  I have personal stuff on here and I don't want anyone to see my stuff or...

    Ep Embarrassment!

    I have personal things on here!! EP is really the biggest thing I don't want people to find. EP is supposed to be my private place where no one I know in real life can come and bug me or judge me. So whenever I let someone use my computer and they go on the Internet and type...

    My Computer Is Like My Second Mind.

    And I don't like people being in my head - it's a private space - that's all.

    It Would Destroy The Pc Industry And Cause Worldwide Economic Depression

    ... when they realize they don't need a 4 Ghz PC with 2 Gigs of RAM to surf the net and check email. After all, my 500 Mhz PIII runs better than most brand spankin' new pc's due to their horribly inefficient configurations.

    Uh...yea.

    I don't know why it makes me uncomfortable. I don't want my setting changed, I guess, and I don't want people snooping through my stuff. I don't have anything to hide, but just the same. I think part of it is that I bought my computer with my money...

    I Have to Agree With Eveybody That Is a Part of This Group

    You do not feel confortable with people touching/using your computer because you have personal files on there you don't want them to see, they could mess up your computer, or your computer could get a virus because of them.

    I just think everyone is going to look at my website history and try to find out stuff about me there or they are going to mess with my private files or something.

    Hate It

    I hate when anyone touches my computer.  I have very private files on my computer that I am in-trusted with by my company.  I get very nervous if someone else touches my computer, much less boots it up and starts using it.
