Where in Win7 Registry can I disable this message

Where in the Win7 registry is it possible to disable this message, please anyone? I'm already aware of the problem and no matter what I try and/or advice taken from various forums regarding this very irritating USB3/Windows 7 bug - this message is driving me crazy! Can I disable it?

This "Prompt" when I insert a USB3 device:
This device can transfer information faster if you connect it to a Super-Speed USB 3.0 port

Despite this message my USB3 devices perform totally at the USB3 promised speeds.

Any HELP would be greatly appreciated thank you.

Try going into Device Manager and clicking on one of the USB controllers. There should be a check box on the Advanced Tab about telling you if your device can preform better.

Pretty much what was the case when going from USB 1.1 to USB 2. Look for the latest drivers, both for your motherboard and your USB 3.0 piece. One of these days it'll work without remarks. Also, check for BIOS updates. Something in the chain doesn't work like it should.
