Suggestions to change resolution

I have a Windows 7 computer with a Viewsonic monitor.  I have found that using a slightly lower than maximum resolution works better for me, but if I don't have the resolution set at the maximum I continually get a message popping up that suggests I use a higher resolution for better performance - then the message window gives me two options (one for changing the resolution, and the other for closing the window).  This is very annoying.  Is there any way to make the "suggestion" stop appearing?
