The the new unified firmware interface Windows can actually make changes to the bios and even updated as Brian said. if you using legacy bios windows can't interact with it.

I have an acer, and I never heard or come across such an issue, and I wouldn’t have thaught an windows update would change any bios settings in itself

 

Maybe the cmos battery is at fault here, rather than windows

Subject: Windows update changing function keys

 

I have an Acer running Windows 10 and the latest version of JAWS. The last 2 Windows updates have changed my function keys back to their original settings. This means I have to add the function key to make typical commands work. Has anyone else had a similar problem? I have to bring up my computer and go into the BIOS and get sighted assistance to put the function keys back the way I want them. This is extremely frustrating.
