Suppress EventViewer ATi amdkmdag spam

Posted on .

If you have the ATi Catalyst Control Center installed then you may have come accross hundreds if not thousands of event viewer records from “amdkmdag” with a single line of data “UVD Information”.

This is supposedly the graphics driver notifying you that a peice of video has not passed HDCP checks (read: DRM for video).

To disable this and suppress the messages, make the following registry change,

Or download and run this as a file to make the change.

    Even if ATI CCC is not installed you may get these annoying event viewer records. Entries in Windows registry are more than one

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMControlSet001servicesAtierecord]
    “eRecordEnable”=dword:00000000
    “eRecordEnablePopups”=dword:00000000

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMControlSet001serviceseventlogApplicationATIeRecord]
    “eRecordEnable”=dword:00000000

    and I think they should all read 0
