My computer's HWID keeps changing after every restart.

Mark Meza 1 Reputation point

Ever since I reset my pc and got it on the latest update, it changes my HWID after every restart. Help! I'm not a technician so i can't really point out what update caused that. I don't use any tools that change my HWID or modify it in any way so this is very confusing on how this could've happened. any help will be appreciated. thanks!

    HI MarkMeza-9031,

    After reset you pc, please enter below powershell command to check which update has been installed? Please create a screenshot1.

    After you get it on the latest update, please enter below powershell command to check which update has been installed again? Please create a screenshot2.

    Finally, we can compare which difference between screenshot1 and screenshot2?
