"Your computer is running slow" Windows 7 error

EliminationElimination Registered User regular
I fired up a game earlier, after turning on Aero and all that crap for probably the first time since i've built this PC and this error popped up asking if i wanted to turn off Aero because "my computer is running slow", I checked my resource usage and my computer was not overly-utilizing any resources or running slow at all. So I have no clue what this thing is talking about. I proceeded to ignore it and play Saint's Row III anyways, and the game ran fine as usual on max settings.

PC Specs:
AMd Phenom II 1090t x6 @ 3.8ghz
12gb DDR3
2x 750g Hitatchi Deskstar 7200rpm
2x AMD 6950 2gb in Crossfire, moderately oc'd.

Any reason this should worry me that I am not seeing? Because to my eye's it just looks like windows is making a mistake.

    At least Windows is asking. Sometime it switches of Aero for no good reason on my PC ;)

    Yeah, it seems to be just something Windows does from time to time. My PC is a gaming beast and I get asked to turn off Aero once in awhile.

    And it's even snarky... I always click "NEVER ASK THIS AGAIN". Does it listen to me? NOooooooo...
