I am running windows 7 on my desktop & my problem is a thing called magnifier. I can be searching the web, looking up emails, or generally browsing. It does not matter which browser I am using, this magnifier keeps coming on without me asking for it. It is a very annoying feature, enlarges the screen enormously & I cannot seem to stop it. I tried going to the section for enhancements for disabled viewers & unticking all the boxes, including magnifier, but it still keeps popping up. Does anybody know how to stop this from happenning?

One way is to do the following:

1. Click start, type msconfig in the search box.
2. Click on Startup.
3. Disable Windows Live Mail and magnifier.
4. Click on apply and then hit OK.
5. Restart the computer.

You may be accidentally pressing the 'windows' key and going into the accessibility program settings.
