Windows 7: notification with 3 options on it about performance?

notification with 3 options on it about performance?

Hello, I'm sorry to budge in an old thread but my search couldn't find any other thread regarding my problem which is described below.

Sometimes after a session of a video game I got this notification with 3 options on it about performance, I'm sorry I can't remember what is what and missed to take any screenshot, but I'm sure I clicked the option of "No and dont show me again" of some sort. But it keeps coming back every once in a while.

My question is how can I make it disappear forever?
Is it related to any service that I can disable?
Thanks in advance

It would be very helpful to post a screenshot the next time that warning pops up.
Your description does not offer much of a clue.

You can check Event Viewer to see if there are any warnings, errors.

This maybe of some value: Error Message - Where Does it Come From

P.S. If you can't see my system specs in this post, Chrome & Firefox, you can see it here. Or maybe it's just me.
Fix or repair what is causing the warning.

Don't worry about Services right now, if anything, it may be related to a Service that needs enabled.

P.S. Might be you, I can see them just fine, thank you for filling them out!

7Forums changed Servers today, that might be why there was a delay in answering your post.

Even though I do not know what you are talking about, you could try these:

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
Repair Install
Disk Check

A Malwarebytes and Microsoft Security Essentials Scan may also help.

I think I know what you are seeing as I get this every now and then while gaming. Does it look something like this? If so, you can disable this message by doing the following:

1. Go to Start Menu and type in "Action Center" and start it
2. Click on Change Action Center settings
3. Under Maintenance Messages untick the Windows Troubleshooting checkbox
4. Click OK and that's it

I leave mine on as I don't really want to disable this. Although I never get any other types of messages, you never know when you might need this enabled.

You could also disable Aero while playing the games that give you this message by right clicking on the game exe/properties and ticking "disable desktop composition" under compatibility.

I think you are on to something there Squid.

Your right about disabling it. If Mario has windows troubleshooting unchecked. S/he could miss some hardware device driver messages.

And, like you mentioned, there could be incompatibility with some of the games s/he's running, and turn off Desktop compatibility for those games.

I did find a brand spankin' new driver for the GPU (01-25-2012):

A reboot will solve the problem, your RAM is hitting peak cache that's all, mine does it after a few days of being on and I have to reboot to fix.

That might help the OP but it wouldn't work for me. My computer is only turned on when I play a game so it's not on very often and I still get this message at times when I play certain games. I can turn on my computer, immediately launch a game and still get this message. No biggie for me, I just click "keep the current color scheme" and play the game with no issues.

Yes, that is exactly it. Good one, Mr. Squid.
I have disabled/unticked Windows Troubleshooting in Action Center as you suggest, WT hasn't been much help anyway. Or is there any important feature I might miss by disabling it?

And thanks everybody to have looked into my thread and helped

Hardware device driver messages won't be displayed. If I were you I would really leave this on and just disable Aero when you are playing these games that give you this message. You won't even notice Aero is off and it will come right back on after you quit the game.

Right click on the games exe file and click properties>compatibility>tick disable desktop composition and you are good to go!
