I'm always installing new programs and testing new operating systems on my computer. (I know you can do the same in virtual machines, but they do not have the same hardware as the host.)
For this reason I need to restart my computer all the time (pressing the reset button), either because of a virus or crash.
I heard that the hard disk may become damaged and I could lose important information, but I'm worried about the other components, like the processor, RAM or motherboard.
Can these components also be damaged if continuously restart my computer?
