Elevated/Admin Notepad++ Context Menu

Posted on .

I use NotePad++ on Windows and sometimes it is a little frustrating when UAC gets in the way of my editing some files. I have to manually load NotePad++ as Administrator, and try again.

This INF file will install an extra context menu called “Edit with NotePad++ (elevated)”.

Once downloaded, right click the file and choose Install.

Note: The install script assumes NotePad++ is at “C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\notepad++.exe”. You can adjust the location in the install script by editing the very last line.

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.
