Hi Techno Guys & Gals

Every time I log on to my laptop a magnifier appears on screen. It's not a big deal, more of an irritant.

Can anyone tell me how to get rid of it?

Cheers

Big Prawn

Hiya Bigprawn Very Happy

Whats the OS hon ?

Oh you gone ! Laughing

OK for XP > Here

Vista (can be a pest) > Click the windows icon bottom left of your screen. Go to control panel. Then click Ease of Access. Now click Ease of Access centre. Now click on Make the computer easier to see. Now uncheck Turn on Narrator and/or turn on Magnifier. To finish click apply. Sometimes this starts on its own in Vista > To stop it, press Control-Alt-Delete and then start the "Task Manager". Select the "Processes" tab, locate and select the Magnifier.exe process, then click the "End process" button. This will remove the magnifier from the screen, without altering any settings.

Ok then. One more. Just to see if you are truly the genie in the free pc support website I think you are.

Everytime I open my laptop up it tells me that "Stub has stopped working".

What is Stub?

Do I need it?

How do I fix it?

Is it hard?

I realise that's a number of questions but I have faith in your knowledge my feline wonder.

Thank you for your patience with my techno-fear.
