How to avoid my friends using my personal computer.

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi experts,

I have many important documents in my computer which I don't want  to share with my friends. But my friends are insisting to use my computer. What should I do then?

How do i secure my desktop, can i create a new profile for them?

Securing my Windows 7 desktop could be fun and sure could have many ways with this latest OS

Any suggestion is welcomed.

Thank you.

As your friend wants to use your PC so it is difficult to say no. Don’t worry you can save your documents with a simple technique, your friends will not be able to see your files.

1. Go to the Desktop.

2. By right-clicking on it make a compressed zipper folder >> Name it as your wish.

3. Except My Computer and Recycling Bin, keep your all desktop documents in it.

4. Now go to the folder >> Click file>> add password.

5. As an advanced user you can also make an encrypted file container with FreeORFE or TrueCrypt.

Your’re done! Now you can protect your privacy.
