Not sure if you computer experts can help me out with this one, but I'll give it a shot.

When I restart my computer, I get 2 messages:

162 configeration change has occurred
662 configeration change has occurred

Those messages appear at different times, and I my computer brings up the systems menu, from which I have been exiting, and my computer just continues to start from there.

Does anyone know what is causing this change, and how to fix it ?

I own a desktop computer, have not added any new memory etc.. This problem has just recently started.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi..if you have d/loaded and run new programs etc..on restart Windows will update system files..and it will say it's updating and continuing to load windows..
Might be worded differently on other systems..
Is your pc running ok once loaded?

Once I get the computer going, it runs normally, no problems at all.

I haven't downloaded anything of late - I do worry about some Internet spyware causing a problem though. Anything I can do to make sure that nothing is there that shouldn't be ?

Thanks for the help!

blues-harp: is that a normal amount of configuration changes, or is that high? I've not seen that error before, and as such don't know squat about it, but just curious.

Those aren't the number of changes, those are the identification of the changes. That means there have been changes made in the BIOS. All you should need to do is go into the BIOS, save and exit and it should, under normal circumstances, be fixed.

Sirkenin,

Thanks for the info - that has sorted the same "problem" I was having (y)

Spiderman1:

If you look in the bottom left of you screen (immediately on boot up) it should say something like "hit DEL to enter setup" - but you have to be quick.

You should then have the option to Save and Exit. ( could be f10 - other systems my vary )
