RustyJ (145) Never took a computer to be fixed as I'm quite handy with them myself. Most of my collection is on extrenal drives anyway.

lk2fireone (196) Would definitely try to fix it myself.

PinkPanther (46) I recently had a computer virus attack that wound up completely disabling my ability to get on the internet or download any types of security updates that would have been able to deal with it.

I hadn't been using external HD's for my collection - plus virtually all my "favorites" are porn-related.

The older Asian guy that fixed it for me was completely non-plussed by my porn - when I picked it up he was gleefully flipping through my favorites to show how good the navigation now was.

But I did learn the lesson - the pros use external HD's. There's just too many people with their own agendas out there for it to really be safe otherwise.

WeeWillyWinky (90) You need the password to log in to my side of the computer where the naughty stuff is. If I needed to have it repaired I'd tell the guy to click my son's user icon, which does not require a password.

If the repair guy goes deep and see the porn anyway, there is faint reason to think he'd bat an eye. Unless it was illegal stuff. I don't see the big problem.

Most tech guys probably have tons of porn.

WeeWillyWinky (90) Erm....you guys don't actually think that what we do is unusual, do ya?

Wittyguy (105) Unless I can't even get the system to boot up I'll probably fix it myself (thankfully that's never happened). While I keep my collection on my computer everything gets backed up to the external every few months so that if I have to wipe the system there's no major loss.

Lionheart (47) Most of porn is on external hard drive, and when that gets nearly full a burn them on a hardcopy. If my computer was not running properly I would try to fix it, but if was problem was really bad, I would need someone to fix it, besides I would need the computer for school and work more then porn.

graymane (33) Gotta say ....this is an originative pole question for this group.
Back a few years ago, before I had the good fortune of latching onto my current technician, I had to use some creative manuvering when a computer repairman came over --- the most effective of which was cramming all my porn into a few folders and burying them deep in my windows program.
As well versed as the computer guys were, they never went back there.
I later parlayed my computer-guy's simple customer association with me into a wholesome friendship with he and his family.... so he now gets my full attention, or anything else he wants within reason. I've come to appreciate security on a whole new level now that I have an on-the-spot- computer expert who'll spare me mortgaging my home or donating an organ for his services.

pat362 (375) I usually try to fix the problem myself but that as less to do with the porn and more because of the cost of getting it fixed by a tech.

RagingBuddhist (65) This one struck a nerve, as I'm now typing on a laptop. I came home from work one day last week, turned on the computer and went into the kitchen to start a pot of coffee. The next thing I hear is a booming voice from the ASUS post reporter saying, "System failed CPU test", over and over again. Googled the problem and there doesn't seem to be a definitive fix for it so, after trying several of the suggested remedies, it looks like I'm going to have to build a new computer.

slutty (111) Yeah, I would fix it myself, although all my porn is on an external drive unless I am actively downloading.

I recently started getting the good ole BSOD in Win7, been too lazy to try and fix it so far, loves me some Microsoft.

There's also supposed to be a Black Screen of Death and a Red Screen of Death out there, but I've never seen either one of those, that I can remember. The Blue Screen of Death pays me a visit every so often, and has ever since I started using a home computer.

exotics4me (463) A few weeks ago, not so much a computer hardware problem, but a fried cable modem sent the cable guy out since hell, I don't know, we can't figure out where to plug the cords. He hooks it up, waits for a signal, tests it out by opening my browser and says, "You ever use those tube sites for porn?" and a whole discussion followed about porn and why he should join paysites instead. Including me showing him how much nicer those 3000 long end pictures look than those tiny TGP sites pictures.

Jay G (67) I fix it myself, but I also save all porn to external hard drives, not the C drive.

For fixing problems, usually re-installing the operating system wipes out all non-mechanical or non-BIOS problems. Because all my data is on external hard drives, re-installing is not a problem. Tearing a computer apart and replacing pieces like the hard drive is not really that hard, either. If you have problems, there are solutions on the internet...oh,oh, no computer to access the internet....;)

Yeah, it has always been around I suppose, it doesn't seem as though it happened as often on my old XP machine...

I personally like Win XP better than Win 7. Win XP just seems easier to use. But the new computers all come with Win 7, and I'm not going to pay extra (a large amount of dollars) to add Win XP to my PC.

Microsoft charges a large amount of money if you are buying an OS separately from them. Nowadays, the cost of the Microsoft OS is what, maybe $200, and you can buy a low-priced PC for $500 with all the hardware and software that comes with it.

The price for buying items separately instead of bundled with a new PC has always been high, but it seems even higher nowadays. Unless you really know where to buy, and can do it yourself, instead of having a PC tech guy do it for you.

dracken (246) I never had a tech problem that I couldn't solve myself. Then again I am the guy everyone asks for help.

Also as a rule of thumb I have no porn on work computers or anywhere where it could be easily found. As other people have mentioned an external is a very good investment.

Also as a side note I built my own PC and saved about 300 bucks because I bought everything on sale from various sites...made up the price of the crappy windows license

BadMrFrosty (56) I have never let a technical problem defeat me yet, always managed to fix my stuff myself. That said if I were not the techie type, I would'nt have a problem handing my PC over to someone to fix it, loaded with porn or not. My grot collection is completely legal so there wouldnt be any problems.

The same cannot be said about a certain minor celebraty / 70's pop star who handed his broken computer to his local branch of PC World loaded with kiddie porn...
