Re: RegWrite - Safety issues

Still safe? Wanted to disguse it, as it being used to authenticate the use of my script. Yes, it's still safe... although if you want to disguise data from being human-readable, i.e. to obscure from casual observation, then consider the use of simple encryption in your code and read/writing the enc...

Re: Execute script from URL Topic is solved

Have you looked into using Google Drive/OneDrive/Dropbox etc. and using a public folder to which your friends have the URL? I use this method for a shared journal. I update the local copy of the journal and the Google Drive app takes care of the syncing. Rather than execute from the URL, perhaps cre...

Re: Auto-start script in non-elevated mode?

You could call psexec (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/sysinternals/downloads/psexec), for example:

Code: Select all

Run, psexec.exe -l -d non-admin.exe
or use Task Scheduler and specify a non-privileged user account to use.

Re: Turn Windows Night Light on and off

The ON/OFF toggle state of the Night Light (in Win 10 Home 1803 ) appears to be controlled by a binary value in the registry. Have a look at the 'Data' entry under the following registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\CloudStore\Store\Cache\DefaultAccount\$$windows....

Re: Script to detect if disk is SSD or HDD Topic is solved

Just be a bit careful of WMI queries, commandline (WMIC) or not. I have a Win 7 PC with both an SSD (C:) and an HDD (D:). A WMI query on the Win32_LogicalDisk class in the default root\CIMV2 namespace returns a DriveType of 3 for both drives. According to Microsoft documentation a DriveType 3 just ...

Re: Windows 10 Start button

I see, I think I removed this Task view button somewhere in the options, when I started with Win10 (at least, it is gone now :D ). Perhaps Win10 then re-numbers the buttons... good to know. Or, it's really because of a different version. (I might investigate at a later time...) With Win 10 1803, th...

Would you know what software was used to write the program?
Sorry but no.

I just pulled the setup.exe (https://www.murgee.com/auto-mouse-click/download/setup.exe) download apart (extracted using 7-Zip) and examined each file for the tell-tale signs of AutoHotkey.

It will go from your outbox to sent messages once the recipent received it - as in when the other person read it.
Ahh... that explains it! Many thanks for the explanation, nnnik. I'm more used to vBulletin boards where sent PMs show in the 'Sent' folder immediately.

Re: I can't remove AutoHotkey.exe off of my computer?

It's being run from a non-standard startup location so something else must be calling it. Try using Sysinternals/TechNet's Autoruns ( https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/downloads/autoruns ) to identify how it's being called. Autoruns will also let you disable and/or delete how it's being ...
