"Col" means column, so at the 179th character in your code on the indicated line where the issue was found. To remedy the issue, well you could simply change your preferences to not update your code. For the specific issue that you're referring to about closing a IMG tag, it seems that perhaps you're using an XTHML doctype for your file, but you have one (or more) images on your page that are similar to:
<img src="me.jpg" >
instead of what XHTML would require:
<img src="me.jpg" />
So if you have a lot of pages with the non-closed IMG tags on them, then with what appears to be your preferences Dreamweaver will attempt to correct the issues when a new page wit the issue on it is opened. Once Dreamweaver has fixed the issue, theoretically, you shouldn't get that message again for that doent. Unless of course you re-add in valid XHTML code to your page.
If you have other issues with this, please post in the general Dreamweaver forum ( [url]http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/webforums/forum/categories.cfm?forumid=12&catid=189&entercat=y[/url] ) and post a link to one of your pages, and possibly also post screenshots to indicate exactly what you're seeing and when.
