Hi and Welcome to SevenForums,

When a user connects to a VPN it will only affect that computer, all other computers will continue to function as normal unless the VPN connection/setup is made at the router level in which case any computer connected to that router will be affected but in general you connect from your own laptop/pc so it wouldn't affect anyone else.

Others PC wont affected by your vpn tunnel in general.The VPN is created from the client machine, through the internet, to the VPN server. Only traffic from/to the VPN client is affected.
