• How do I make absolute sure that I'm in control of my PC (read desc)?

    So about a year ago I scrapped together $500, I payed for all the parts about of my pocket, and built the machine myself.

    So about a year ago I scrapped together $500, I payed for all the parts about of my pocket, and built the machine myself. Now my mom is trying to take control and constantly pissing me off by threatening to put a two hour maximum window on it. Now, since I built it and installed the OS and everything myself I'm the owner of the computer at the moment, but I know that if she has someone come over and reinstall the OS they can take ownership and give me a shitty, no access User account. I'm not gonna stand for this bullshit. It's one thing if she paid for it, if she built it, but she didn't. I get that she's my mother but this is taking it too far, she's restricting my freedom and nothing pisses me off more than that. So that being said, how can I be sure that I never lose rights? I know that this is a really vague question but I'm just asking for random little tricks. My OS is Windows 10 btw, just upgraded a week ago from Win 7. This is really important to me, I'll fall apart if I can't fulfill my musical ambitions and live my geeky lifestyle, once the computer or internet access goes I get severely depressed. Because outside of this world I have nothing. I'll be heavily indebted to anyone who can give me advice, thanks guys ;P

  • Is Lylock a good artist name?

    Uhg, I'm having trouble finding a good producer name, and then this popped into my head. I produce Melodic Dubstep --err, I want to-- and I need to find a good name for when I release my first track. Does Lylock seem like a good name? Derived from the lilac flower, which is one of my favorite :P

  • What's the community like in Old School Runescape now?

    Is it dead like the current Runescape? Sorry, I haven't really played the game, and I only want to play it if the community's chill and stuff. I've heard a lot of bad stuff about the new Runescape and I want to play the Old School one if the community's still cool.

  • So this has been annoying me when I stream anime?

  • How hard is it to learn to play the piano, and how much time will it take to play efficiently?

    Hiya, I wanna learn how to play the piano so that I have more experience and can make producing electronic music easier. I figure it'll allow me to figure out original melodies easier and give me a little bit of an edge. Soo how long will it take to play the piano well, not amazing, but well?

  • I have two choices for jobs to do in the future, what do you think is best?

    So as I've stated above, I have my mind set on two things. But I can only choose one, I don't think it'd be possible to do both, it'd be way too hard to work out a time schedule. With that said. I've always been interested in space so I kinda want to become an astronomer. But on the other hand I equally want to become a DJ, S3rl... show more

I'm stuck in between these two, think you can help meh out?

    So I have wanted a nice gaming PC for a while now and I heard about barebone kits a couple weeks ago. I've been searching around quite a bit but I can't find what I'm looking for. So I decided to take this to yahoo to let some more people who are more intelligent than google to help me find the answer. I will list the following specs (Yes the price is possible I almost found one with all these specs for $180): The CPU or processor must be 3.5 ghz base speed or above. And it must NOT have integrated graphics... RAM memory must be 8 GB or more. Graphics Card can be by anyone. Preferably AMD or Nvidia. But it needs to be dedicated. 500 GB or more hard drive memory. Any wireless network adapter. Finally (and most obviously) a power supply. It's ok if you end up giving me websites to separate parts as long as they all add up to be $310 or less. I will repeat once again. My price range is $100-$310! Thank you all who answer, you'd have helped me out a lot!

  • What are some good German movies on Netflix?

    I have started to learn German and according to the presentation for the product (which I watched before I bought it) hearing the language tends to help you learn it easier so I was wondering if anyone knew of some good action/adventure movies on Netflix that I could watch. Thank You!! :)
