How can I change the Default log viewer from Notepad to something else. I have associated .txt files with a Unicode capable text editor but NowSMS still uses Notepad to open its log files. How can I change it to use the Unicode viewer, so I do not have to look at the 'boxes' in the logs anymore ?

Unfortunately it is hard coded to launch NOTEPAD.EXE, and there is no configuration parameter to change this.
I will submit an engineering request to ask to launch the log files to be viewed with whatever viewer is configured in Windows, instead of always launching NOTEPAD.EXE.
FWIW, I typically view the log files from an external program instead of using this user interface. I browse to the directory with V - The File Viewer ... and find it to be a good tool for searching through log files. (Although I don't think it does Unicode.)
