How do I edit system specs

Specs: Windows Me, 633 Mhz/191Mb
I was at my Mom's computer that runs Windows Vista and I asked the window's Vista forum a question about a problem with her computer. I also asked the Me forum the same question from her computer. Ever since then my Mom's system specs are in 'My Home' page on my computer and I don't know how to edit it back to the specs of this computer. I tried to run the scan in system specs but I get a message that it doesn't recognize the digital signature. What do I do?

I'm confused. Is the computer you're asking the question about running XP or ME? Is the 'home page' the IE home page?

I'm running Me as always on my computer. I went to MY HOME in computing.net. I just went there again and the system specs are correct now for my computer. If I have more problems later concerning this I will let you know. I don't know why earlier it was showing the specs for my Mom's computer. Thanks

It was probably just displaying the previous saved info based on your user name or IP address.

The changes don't take effect until you log out of CN, clear your cookies, then log back in.

You should probably repost in the windows 7 forum.

The System Scanner in "Home" has two shortcomings (hopefully there's a way it could be addressed):

*The scanner only works with modern versions of Java, so you must be running XP, Vista or 7
*The scanner only works with Windows, not Mac

It would be neat if there was a way to make it compatible going back to Java 1.3, since that it the latest version to run on Windows 95/NT. Maybe someone can figure out how to make that happen.

EDIT: Even simpler would be to make it where someone could manually enter their specs and save it in "Home", that way it could override the Java-based solution if they can't run Java on their machine.
