Do you get mad when someone touches your computer?

I don't like other people touching my computer, I am afraid they might mix something up. Do you like it when someone touches yours?

I don't get mad because it does not happen. The other people in my household are not allowed to use my computer. We have other machines for them. Mine is protected by a strong password, so they cannot access it even if I am not here. I do spend some time fixing things they have messed up, but not on my personal computer. It is off limits.

I don't like it, but I do let other people use my computer. I just be behind there back and breathing down their neck to make sure they aren't doing what they aren't suppose to be doing on my computer.

I used to not mind if others touched or used my computer. But back in high school, when I had a lot of friends over, a lot of them used my computer and gave me a virus. I got disappointed and from then on, I never let anyone touch my computer and if they do- I am watching their every move. Thankfully, my computer was restored and fixed because my brother in law is a computer engineer.

Only if they absolutely must but it makes uneasy and nervous when others use my computer. As I have it set up a certain way and it is how I earn my money. So anyone on my computer better not download anything on my computer as I am very strict about that as without it I can not earn.

I have a personal laptop that I do not like other people accessing, be it friend or family. I do not have anything on there that I would be embarrassed for someone else to see, but I do tend to remain logged in to frequently used sites that I would not want anyone else to mess around on, especially from my account. This is why I lock my computer when I leave the house or the room, or even shut it down completely.

Not if I am not doing anything important where I could lose some data or a webpage I don't want to close. It has happened a few times and I can be pretty mean about it lol but only if it's important otherwise I have nothing to hide on my computer and people are welcome to use it when I'm not on.

Do you mean like touching say, your screen or hard drive? You must have a pretty expensive computer :D. I don't really mind when people I know touch my computer, but I might get annoyed when they use it without me knowing.

An inexperienced user-YES especially when i am not around,it really scares me off because i dont know what the person is gonna do to my computer, If the person does that under my strict supervision then i aint gonna be having a problem with that!

Yes, I usually do get annoyed when somoene touches my computer. They some times close down windows that I have opened or erase stuff that I want to keep. They don't mean to do it, but accidents do happen. If something is going to happen with my computer I want it to be by my own hands and not by someone else. I just prefer to be the only one that touches my computer. If someone asks I will usually let them, but with a stern warning not to touch any of my stuff.

I hate it if anyone uses my laptop or my pc,as some of the sites have virus problems,also some of them tend to send junk mail if a person uses your email address.Thankfully i have a good anti virus on both the pc aswell as the lap top.Thankfully all my friends,family and children have their own pcs and lap tops,so there is no need to use mine.

Good Evening dear Tresaqwe , well to be honest with you , i dont really mind when someone from my familly touches my computer , neither if someone whom has some informatique knowledge and respects the way i had my computer aranged , wich means from itself , no downloading without permision , and certainly no moving stuff from folders , or nothing from my computer , since i am pretty meticoulos about the way i have ordered my folders and my ^programs in my computer. I think it is only normal , i would be afraid if someone whom has zero knowledge in informatique would touch my computer ,actually i would not let him touch it without my supervision , so we cann evoid mixings and problems. Have a nice evening dear friend.
