Hi My name is Andy , from Dallas. 
 
I have a small situation.
 
 
Today  evening when I opened my computer it said " Windows has detected an IP address conflict .
 
The system detected an address conflict for IP address 192.168.x.x  with the system having network hardware address A0-02-DC-49-2E-xx. Network operations on this system may be disrupted as a result.
Is this a spy ware and should I need  to be concerned. PLease assist me.

Hi Andy :)

This issue isn't caused by malware, but mostly by a bad management of the DHCP from which you get your LAN IP addresses. How many devices do you have connected to your modem/router in total?

No, it is not spyware.

This error message indicates that another computer on the network is using the same IP address that your computer is using. Each computer on a network must have a unique IP address.
