...User, like on Windows? I dunno, I just really hate it. And not just because my URL bar auto-completes porn sites, lol. It just feels invasive, especially when someone messes with your setting or options. Blech!

Or, you could use a guest account. But before that, put a password on your normal account!

Not really. But I'm particularly paranoid about a supervisor or coworker using this laptop and having something autocomplete to 'beach orgy' or some shit. So far the only thing that's mildly occurred is youporn flashing as an autocomplete as I type in youtube, but hopefully no one caught it, and I've sense cleared caches and autocompletes and only browse that fun stuff in private mode... and formatted the hard drive...

Yes. It's like letting someone else drive your car. You can ride shotgun/look over their shoulder, but it's still a little.. wrong feeling.

And if you let them out of sight with it.. well, there's the chance of a catastrophic event, sure, but sometimes people do things like fuck with the radio settings/install "tiny" programs that can be anything from a minor annoyance to ".. you did what?" depending on how many settings were changed/what program was installed.

I hate it, hate it, hate it... which makes my mum paranoid, but she's now learned not to ask.

It's a little because of porn, a bit because of the risk of Frapeing, but mainly because of the massive quantaties of sensative personal conversations which are stored in my inbox and documents folder...

it's only violating if they don't have permission (which I assume is the case you are talking about) and that's easy to get around : Passwords / don't let anyone use your computer :P

Not a problem here, but that's because I'm running a Unix-derived operating system. Proper account separation does wonders for one's peace of mind.

So do I on my main computer, yet I'm still paranoid as hell and don't let anyone use it. I also get really bitchy if people try to use it without asking (even though they wouldn't be able to do anything but stare at a password prompt). Heck, I don't even like people sitting in my office chair -- though this may be because when it was brand new, someone else almost broke it.

I don't let people use my computer, but that's usually because whenever someone does they inevitably ask me three things:

"What operating system is this? It's kind of like OSX but I don't see the Apple logo anywhere."
"Why doesn't your touchpad work? This laptop sucks." *
"How do you pronounce 'Asus'?"

* My touchpad is disabled by default (with a hotkey to turn it back on, just in case) because 1) it's positioned oddly enough that I hit it with my palms whilst typing, and 2) I have an awesome external mouse.

+1. The only other people having accounts on this computer are my mom and my gf. I think neither of them have the ability nor the capability to screw things up.

Besides, all important stuff lies on the wardrobe server.

The only person who stands a decent chance of being able to use my computer when she asks is my sister, and even then she'll need reminding as to how she can switch the keyboard settings (she uses Dvorak, I use qwerty) - she's also a mac user, but we have different functions for the same key binding :P

I feel violated when someone makes me use Windows.

That said, I simply don't allow people to use my account without full supervision. If I have any reason to expect someone might as much as move the mouse without my explicitly allowing it, I password-lock X.

I don't feel so bad as long as they don't change anything (esp. installing things). My settings and positioning of things is highly customised, so it's annoying if someone messes about with it. Also, the account I use is always an admin, so it's a bit easy to break things. Usually I just guide them on how to what they want as fast as possible, unless they're just browsing.

Funnily enough, I never actually thought of using a guest account for guests. Just had it in my head as one of those accounts you need to remember to disable.

It annoys me because we have 4 computers at home, and there are 4 of us, so there is no reason to use someone else's. Still, it annoys me a bit less than my 10 year old sister opening the case (with a side window) and putting small toys in it "because they're cute". Well, in fact I've started to like them. Right now I have two rubber ducks and a metal Chewbacca on the PSU, a penguinin its cable nest, two mules pinned to the 24-pin power cable, a small car on the video card and an origami rabbit on a small ledge whose purpose I don't know.

I don't mind people using my computer, usually it's just for checking mail. I sure would get upset if they changed any settings, however. Just like I have no problem having people visting/staying in my house/room but would dislike if they started moving stuff around and then I can't find anything anymore.

I use XP too, and you can really only run programs as an admin, which makes it easy to install stuff.

The thing that makes me worry is that there's a seven or eight years worth of stuff about other people's lives, mistakes, foibles, and situations which I have no right to divulge or pass on. I'd feel extremely guilty if any of that were to accidentally grow legs.

I live alone, so I don't have to worry about this all that often. But when people come over, I just log out. I created two other "limited" accounts with no passwords that anyone can choose from. My "admin" accound and the actual "Administrator" account (which doesn't show up on the normal login screen) are both password protected. All the limited accounts have access to is IE, media players, and Office (and minor, misc. other stuff). They should'nt need anything else, and the "limited" aspect should prevent them from installing most programs, barring malicious stuff that they consent to download (knowingly or not). And if it comes to that, Norton should give them a heads up. At this point they know they did something wrong, and delete the relevant files, or they don't and come ask me wtf is going on and I tell them they've done something wrong. Or they're just plain stupid and/or out to get me, in which case I keep them away from the computer or don't invite them over.

I don't really have to worry about that with my personal laptop, mainly because I'm pretty protective/secretive with it. I don't exactly leave it sitting around for anyone to walk up and use. Not that there's much of anything incriminating on here anyway; all the "fun stuff" is executed in private browsing anyway, and I'm generally pretty good at clearing caches and stuff.

It happens all the time at work, however, and it drives me nuts. I don't have anything incriminating on my work computer, but it's still full of documents that are pretty important to what I do, and when someone's sitting at my desk and dicking around on my desktop, a) I don't have access to it and b) I never know if they're going to accidentally fubar or delete something vitally important. It's more of a professional paranoia than a fear of getting found out to be doing naughty things.

But yeah. In both cases, it's just not right.

I don't feel violated when someone uses my computer, so much as irritated because they're doing it wrong. Like instead of typing a web address into the URL bar, they go file->open... and then type it in. Or even worse, they go to google and type the URL in there instead. ARGH! Or instead of ctrl-c, ctrl-v, they'll right click copy then right click paste. Or the ultimate cardinal sin: they don't use the scroll wheel on the mouse.

It hurts my brain, watching people do things like this.

I don't consume porn on my computer so I'm not worried about history (they'd just pull up WoW sites or stuff I've googled lately). I always lock it just in case, because of course I don't want anyone on it without permission. I just have 1 roommate who I highly doubt would try to use my computer anyway. But better safe than sorry.

I would give permission to a friend or family member to check their mail on my pc and it wouldn't bother me. But I never have visitors so again, not an issue.

My only potential problem is that if someone else is using my computer, I'm not using it. And that would irritate me because I hate sitting around and doing nothing when I could be playing WoW.

Really? Wouldn't you rather just download the file and open it in a word processor to mark it up rather than making a new file in word processor and copying and pasting the text of the essay, making sure to leave out any comments they may have made in the e-mail that wasn't part of the essay and any signature lines and then get to marking it up?
