Windows 7: Who (or what) is setting BIOS password?

Thanks to everyone who replied to my question.

I'm not suggesting that the BIOS has been changed. As removing the button battery would get rid of the password request problem (for one time only), it's clear BIOS itself is clean.

Anyway, I removed the battery and set the jumper to clear CMOS. Upon first startup, I was able to enter BIOS as there was no password request. However, just like before, since the second startup, the password request appeared again.

I finally set a BIOS password. Now, I can enter BIOS because I know what the password is.
