USB can be faster message ???

I have a Compaq PC as follows:

Compaq Presario S5160UK DT261A under XP/SP3
Processor - Celeron 2.7 GHz
Motherboard - MSI MS-6577 v2.1
RAM - 1GB + 512MB (1GB +1GB max) DDR PC2700
PSU - Octigen 300W model 10270PSOTG ('upgraded' from original Bestec 250W PSU [in 2011?])
Nvidia GeForce 6200 graphics card in AGP slot.

(essentially unchanged from new)


It has six USB ports.  I think they are all USB 2.0  ports, but 2 of them are 'slaved' onto the others or something like that [I think, though the m/b spec just says 'Two front, four back (ver. 2.0)].


Anyway, when ever I plug a USB device into any port I always get a speech bubble up containg a message saying something like 'This device can perform faster. This USB device can perform faster if it is connected to a Hi-speed USB 2.0 port.  For a list of available ports click here.'  Clicking here does nothing - it just closes the bubble.  The devices work (don't know what speed).  All the ports on my PC are USB 2 ports !  so what's wrong ?  Or maybe someone could explain what this message means please ?
