Issue: Windows 8.1 w/ Intel wireless driver will automatically connect to “free”, unsecured, wireless networks.
This issue has been bugging me for a little bit, but has not been at the top of list until there were a large number of unsecured wireless networks available while traveling. So here’s the solution.
- open the control panel
- Open “Network and Internet”
- Select “Intel ProSet/Wireless Tools”
- Select “Settings…” under “Intel Wifi HotSpot Assistant”
- Remove all check boxes
- Close out of the dialog box
I finally got around to looking for a solution to my problem in OneNote of not being able to re-size multiple images at the same time. There is a nice add-on, and it’s free, that does this and MUCH MORE!

Who doesn’t want to know how their applications are performing? Here’s a quick way to start collecting data and analyzing it.
- Sign-up for a free New Relic account
- Download your New Relic java agent zip file to your server and extract. I placed mine in the “D:\Program Files” folder.
- Edit “D:\Program Files\newrelic\newrelic.yml”
- update the “license_key” and “app_name” variables
- note: the license_key is surrounded in ticks ” and app_name is not.
- Configure the java agent to start when the service starts
- start > run > regedit.exe
- HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Apache Software Foundation\Procrun 2.0\[App ID]\Parameters\Java
- edit “Options” by adding “-javaagent:D:\Program Files\newrelic\newrelic.jar” to the bottom
- Restart your application service
If your app doesn’t show up in the console check your logs! (D:\Program Files\newrelic\logs\newrelic_agent.log)
