Windows forgets visual effects settings on log-out or reboot for non-administrator account

Steps given here worked for me with Windows 7 SP1. Hope you may find it useful.

  • Start -> Run-> cmd (press enter) -> type SystemPropertiesPerformance.exe
  • This gets you the "System Properties" window, go to  Advanced tab -> Performance Settings -> Visual Effects tab and choose "Adjust for best performance" and click OK.
