    Has anyone figure out how to stop that annoying loop in system preferences that says settings have been changed??
    I can get out of it by a two handed click on the OK button and locations but then it just comes back. I don't want to delete all the info on there and have to retype in.
    I'm only finding old posts back in 2008 on this! Am I that far behind??!!!
    I was hoping a permanent easy fix has been found by now. I haven't had the need to get into System pref. til now.

    I see. :p Well:

    1. When did it start
    2. Have you tried resetting the SMC and PRAM? I have not idea if it'll work, but its worth a shot. Resetting does tend to fix various problems ;)

    Good luck!

    Does the dialog box say "Your network settings have been changed by another application"? If so, you can google that phrase and there are a bunch of forum posts on it. One solution is to trash a couple of preference files, I can't remember which ones. But then you have to redo your network settings.
