Virtual Magnifying Glass???

I have had to use Desktop Zoom for real recently after an eye operation, and have uninstalled it. It would always fairly quickly lead to complete system lockup on my Win 7 Home Premium PC, mouse and keyboard completely useless, no pssibility to launch Task manager, hard shutdown the only option.

DesktopZoom v3.5 ( stays magnifying when you click on an item.

Well, Yes, not a bad util BUT, why do all these magnifiers 'Disappear' when you click on the item you want?.
Take a look at the Windows7 version of 'Magnifier' if you can, I prefer it to anything else i've tried so far.

Right ON Man! I never thought this little Magnifier would ever be updated but that didn't really matter, to me anyways. I have used this Magnifier on my old Win 98 computer for years & still use it on 98 puter! I have recommended it to many of my friends over the years, some who still use it. Oh I have tried some others but I always come back to this one because it has never failed me & works every time. So now I will be letting my friends know that there is an update & to get it right away. Thanks a million!!!
