Magnifier in Vista Home Premium


de minimis

Likes # 0

I recently bought a new Acer Laptop with Vista Home Premium installed. Whilst getting used to the computer I clicked on "Magnifier". Now it appears on screen every time the computer starts up. It is easy enough to close it but can anyone tell me how to disable it permanently?

Thanks in advance

Click ok.
