Windows 7: will this cause any problem

25 Dec 2013   #11


Short answer no it shouldn't. What setting(s) exactly did you change? If you're really really worried about it just do a system restore (before you return it) to the closest point before you changed things. I wonder why someone with OCD would change a computer that did not belong to them?

If you haven't done a system restore before. Just click on the start button and type system restore in the search box. Follow the prompts. Otherwise as Maxie says there should be no problems and we're always here to help.

The thing is not that I change anything but I don't know whether I have or not, I enter the control panel setting for both by accident.

I have check and recheck to ensure that the setting haven't been change but it like not registering so I end up checking again and again.

I heard system restore is not good for anti virus so I didn't did it

Then go into Safe mode and do the system restore from there. Your a/v is disabled in safe mode!

If you only entered the Firewall setting, nothing has been changed. Everything is OK.

Did you ever click save, change or edit in any of the screens you are concerned with?

If you just closed them then no changes were made.

If so just tell your the owner of the computer. Stuff happens and they will know best what the settings were.

If your friend knows you well enough to loan you the computer. Just ask your friend when he/she picks up the computer to do a restore point back before the day they loaned the computer to you.
Explain your concerns to your friend.

Thank you so much for all the advices...

though this is off topic but does anyone know any ways to temporarily help with this OCD problem?

Medication and therapy takes time so I am wondering if anyone knows of any ways that can help temporarily.
