Password Change and Steam Guard

Just so I know, does changing my password reset Steam Guard's lsit of "activated" computers?

Changed my password recently and Steam Guard considered an activated computer a new computer.

Sounds like a security feature.

But some reason whenever I login to steampowered on my CR48 (Chrome OS) steam considers it a new computer?

Well, in that case, I think you just answered your own question.

EDIT: Are you logging in from the browser or Steam client or both?

I dont think so. I changed my password without having to verify the same system which makes sense.

I only ever used the Steam Client to log in. I'm assuming it's the same problem some people are having with the Guard asking for the code repeatedly for the same computer...

EDIT: The steps I took:
1. Regularly use laptop (Registered)
2. Logged in on Desktop
3. Registered Desktop
4. Changed password on Desktop
5. Logged in on laptop
6. Needed to register again
