Hello.

Recently, my computer has been giving me warning that the system has been running slowly, and recommends that I switch to the Windows 7 Basic Color Scheme. I do that and the system is much faster, and I am content with the modest color switch. My problem is that I want to keep the switch permanent, but it appears to reset each time I turn the computer on. Can anyone suggest a way in which I can set the Windows 7 Basic scheme as a default?

My computer runs Windows 7 Home Premium (Service Pack 1).

Thanks.

David

Right-click empty part of Desktop > Personalize > scroll down and select Windows 7 Basic.

Do you want to investigate why you were getting that 'switch to...' message ?

Please note, it refers to Trend Micro disabled. That is because I now use the Microsoft Security Essentials antivirus

I think that's your issue right there. You need to completely uninstall "Trend Micro" Here's the recommended uninstall method from Trend Micro. Uninstalling Trend Micro Security Click the drop down for "Uninstalling Trend Micro Security 2015"
