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?

Depends on what graphics adapter you have, but there's a good chance you can find it by right-clicking on the desktop and selecting Graphics Options. Here's what it looks like on one of my my systems:

Action Center - Computer MaintenanceBut I don't believe that you can selectively disable the Optimal Resolution Notification — you would probably have to disable all Computer Maintenance, which you may not want to do. Regards, Joe

You are most welcome!
