Do you allow your personal laptop/PC to be used by others?

I generally try not to allow others to allow using my personal laptop as I have many personal files. In addition to this, I also have made all the email accounts to sign in without asking for a password.

hello ranjeetkolarkar if you have personal private files that should not be shared then no way should you share your laptop. In my case i do share my laptop with my son and daughter, I dont have any private things on my system and if i did i would it passworded just incase. we have 7 screennames with aol so we all log into our own accounts.

i think that is a good option of having multiple users if you have to share one's computer. Thanks for theresponse.

Generally I am very possessive about my p.c.It is of course my personal computer.I consider others using it as a violation of my privacy. Moreover the way certain people drum at the keyboard is really killing.

I am very private about my computers. I don't like someone on them. It is like someone drivng your car, they move the seat and then you have a heck of a time getting it back the way it was. I have seen too many people fool with stuff while on a computer, and they usually screw something up. So no, I tellythem they can't use it.

I prefer not to let others use my things, but my family and close close friends are allowed.

i am studying away from home but i left my PC in our house. i think it would be too selfish not to let my family use it since im not using it myself. you may ask why i didn't bring it where i stay now.well, im now staying inside my school and i have a room mate. she just has too many things that we don't have enough space for my PC. she has a laptop though and she lets me use it.actually, it's what im using now

I do let my housemate use my computer, I have a Mac not a PC because I prefer and have been used to using a Mac, it's personal preference. He actually pays the internet bill, so I can hardly refuse him use of my computer! He hardly ever uses it, just to pick up his hotmail emails and for dating, so I don't mind!
