    P4 2.8ghz HT, 1.5gb, 160gb, Ati 9550 256mb agp 8x.

    I open up Advanced tools and notice below Performance issues that it
    displayed a warning icon with message Performance can be improved by changing
    visual settings. View details. I look at the details and a window pop up with
    a message:

    Adjust visual setting to improve peformance

    The current visual setting might not result in the best computer peformance.
    To improve perforamnce, you cay try closing some windows, turning off window
    transparency, lowering the computer resolution, or changing your color scheme
    to Window Vista Basic. it has button: Help, remove from list, ok

    so i look at the performance details event log and saw warning icons with
    information about Desktop Window Manager is experiencing heavy resource
    contention. reason: Graphic subsystem resources are over-utilized. Is Ati
    Radeon 9550 256mb AGP 8x not enough?

    Althought i don't see any performance issue on my computer at all no slow
    down. I also turn off the transparency and still giving me the warning in the
    advanced tools.

    If you are happy with the way your computer is operating don't worry about
    it would be my advice. Your PC would run faster without all the bells and
    whistles as would any other PC mine says the same (without the specific
    warning about heavy resource contention) and I have a Geforce 8800GTX.

    I thought that Vista turn off the transparency and special effect
    automatically when it find that the computer performance is low.
