    Go to your control panel and type "notification area icon" in the search box. You'll get a page where you can set your preferences. Go to Desktop Window Manager and select "hide notification and icon".
    If a demanding program is being run windows will still change scheme and reset afterwards but it won't interrupt you anymore.

    I was hoping a more desired answer to this problem can be found other then disabling notifications. I receive this pop up all the time playing many different games and some I would notice the pop up with my GC being at a 20% load on some undemanding titles. I would think with my system I wouldn't be strained for resources as I have plenty of avail ram w/e this notification pops up and shouldn't have to turn aero off. Does anyone have any other solutions to this problem?

    Okay, I'm going to reply to this because it showed up as the #1 answer in my google search, and the answers posed so far are rather useless. I found the following instructions here. Be warned. you will also disable some other "troubleshooting" things that Windows automatically does, so I recommend this only to an advanced user.

    windows 7 - Disable "Do you want to change the color scheme to improve performance?" warning - Super User

    1. Go to the Start Menu and type Action Center on the Search box
    2. Start it (it should be the top entry, under the "Control Panel" group)
    3. On the left sidebar, click Change Action Center settings
    4. Untick the Windows Troubleshooting checkbox, under "Maintenance Messages".
    5. Click the Ok button and you are done.

    Heya ppl, I've noticed in several games AND while browsing on Google! example while scrolling down my monitor seems to be skipping frames when running basic with my graphics performance. in GAMES after changing to basic, it makes a such stutter or screen tearing when running in windowd mode, example World of Warcraft and Diablo3, several FPS games too even though you have got fullscreen. so for those that change full time to basic make sure to try it out so you do not get stuck on the same area as I was!

    Towards the topic I still got this issue with BBC2 and several more games, don't seem to use too much of the CPU either, Can easily run 2 Games with full performance in both different games at the same time if I so wish, and as the computer performing worse with basic it annoys me. Isn't there anyone out there who've experienced such and got a solution?

    I still wonder why the message still showing after unchecking Windows Troubleshooting under "Maintenance Messages"

    This may help you. It is a change to the registry I found while on the internet. It seems to have fixed the issue on my computer as I have not had the message since. As normal with changes to the registry, back it up and use at your own risk.

    The answer on this link is the one by Havoc (who appears to have answered his own question) with the tick next to it.

    It goes

    Since Windows doesn't understand how resources work, you need to keep it from checking them:

    In regedit go to:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\DWM (create if not already existent)

    Set a new DWORD UseMachineCheck with a value of 0.

    This will keep Windows from checking if your computer "performs slowly" and thus attempting to disable Aero.

    This doesn't actually disable the check every time, it just ignores your input so some games will just snap into basic instead.

    Apologies for the thread necro, but this is really pissing me off. EVERY website under the sun lists that "Turn off trouble shooting in Action Center" is the solution but it's not. I'm running Windows 7 64 with 32GB of Ram and a Geforce GTX 780 with the latest drivers installed. You can't tell me that my system doesn't have enough resources to run ANY game. It doesn't matter what game I launch, they all minimize and give me this warning. I don't want to disable desktop composition and I don't want to have to run a script file that does it every time I run a game. I've had a previous install of windows where this issue doesn't exist so it's something that only started being a problem recently (just re-installed win 7 on a new HD). I swear MS put out a windows update to force this message to display all the time cause they're trying to get people to upgrade to win 10.
