System Preferences Bug

Whenever I open the networking section of system preferences I get a message that says "Your network settings have been changed by another application" when I click OK, it just pops up again straight away. It is very hard to quit System Preferences and sometimes i have to hold down Cmd Q while pressing OK. I dont think there should be any apps changing my settings. I am using a wireless connection with an airport express.

metallikcherries is right--I've had to do this a few times. But I don't bother with the Security checkbox. Just delete the listed prefs and reboot.
