It refers to the Windows Aero color scheme. That's the feature that makes the borders of application windows semi-transparent. It's just for eye candy but it uses processing power.

You can try Windows 7 Basic as it suggests. You may see a difference in performance. You can always switch back.

The message is probably an indicator of a larger problem however. If performance is slow there may be some unwanted processes running like a piece of malware or two. Try a full system scan using MalwareBytes.

Could be that a memory upgrade is needed. Windows tends to get slower as time passes due to updates and patches that bloat the OS. Or too many memory resident programs have been added to the mix.

First of all, do you feel the performance (opening programs, accessing websites, etc.) of your PC is slow?  If not, click "Keep the current color scheme" and forget about it.

What the message is saying is the Windows Aero feature may be slowing the performance of your PC.
What is Aero?

Are you willing to give up the features of Aero?  If so click the first option.  "Change the color scheme to windows basic."  
Do you see any difference in performance?  Note that the setting will last only until your next boot.

If you want to stop using Aero permanently, here are the instructions.
