Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

Windows and Windows software has no access to BIOS settings. The settings available and where and how they are stored is known only to the BIOS software. Windows has no knowledge of this.

This is a good thing. If legitimate software had access to the BIOS settings you can be very sure that malicious software would as well and would take full advantage. That would open up a whole new world of possibilities for such software.
