Running Windows 7 Ultimate on my machine and I use a KVM switch/hub. The switch/hub runs at USB1.1 max but works fine. Trouble is I keep getting this notification bubble pop-up up every damn time I start the machine or switch to it via the KVM. The 2nd PC on the KVM runs XP and I have turned off the notification on that one - but can't do it on Windows 7

I click the pop-up and it gives me the dialog box with the option of a tick box saying "notify me if my device can run faster".

I have unchecked this box many times but the setting never seems to 'stick' and the next time I get the pop-up again. Might be a silly Windows 7 admin privileges thing or something?

I know it is probably possible to turn off ALL pop-ups but I would prefer not to do that.
Anyone know how to make this setting stick?

PS- I had screenshots of the popup and dialogs but I can't post yet cause I am new :(

Windows 7 has the Tell me if my device can perform faster checkbox, which is probably better than disabling USB errors.

Try going into Device Manager (devmgmt.msc) and open the properties for the USB Controller. On the Advanced tab, check off the Don't tell me about USB errors checkbox.

In Windows 7 it's actually better to use the newly added check box "Tell me if my device can perform faster" than using your recommendation. – Molly7244 Feb 6 '10 at 15:21
@Molly7244: actually I disbled those checkboxes, but the error messages are still popping up. I did it for every USB-entry listetet in device manager providing the checkbox option.. Any other idea? – Master of Celebration Jan 29 '14 at 7:53
