I use a program called Virtual Magnifying Glass, which I think was recommeded by Computer Active.(freeware)

You can load it on to a USB device and therefore use it on any computer.

Once loaded it appears in the tool tray and you click on it when you require it.

It clears itself when you reboot

Hi all, thankyou for your help, I now have a happier friend :-)

I used Diodorus Siculus' suggestion and have installed blackjohn's virtual magnifiying glass program onto my friends pc. I've also bookmarked the pageDieSse gave me for my friend to have a look at.

Once again, thanks for the help.
