Magnifier Starting Up

I have a user with a new Dell system. Everything was fine initially. Now the magnifier starts up shortly after windows startup, and we cannot kill it! I have followed the suggestions at the MS Knowledge base. It does not appear in the Task Manager and I cannot find it as directed in the Registry. I also checked in msconfig and cannot find anything. At this point, I just want to disable it . . .

You go directly to service and stop these services. Also you can see where is located, and you can deleted it, if don't need anymore

SUMMARY
You can use Utility Manager to check the status of an accessibility program and to start or stop an accessibility program. If you have administrator-level access, you can configure Microsoft Windows so that the accessibility program starts when Utility Manager starts. The following built-in accessibility programs are available from Utility Manager: ? Magnifier
? Narrator
? On-Screen Keyboard
Narrator starts by default when Utility Manager starts so that users who have impaired vision have immediate access to Utility Manager. This article describes how to control accessibility features for a visually impaired user by using Utility Manager on a Microsoft Windows 2000-based or a Microsoft Windows XP-based computer.


Start Utility Manager
To open Utility Manager, press the Windows logo key+U. You can press the Windows logo key+U when the Welcome to Windows dialog box is displayed, before you log on to the computer. If you do this, if you make changes to the specified accessibility features when you are logged on, these changes are automatically applied.


Use Utility Manager
You can configure Windows to automatically start any or all of the three accessibility programs at any of the following times: ? When you log on
? When you lock the computer desktop
? When you start Utility Manager
For example, you can configure Magnifier to start automatically the next time that you log on to your computer. When you do this, you do not have to follow the procedure to start Magnifier each time that you log on to your computer.

i would also try a new user account, created for test purposes. create the account and give it local administrator group membership. if that works to control the magnifier, you have either insufficient rights on the user account you are trying to use (my guess) or you have a corrupt profile...
