Windows 7: DPI Affecting Programs

DPI Affecting Programs

Hey guys, I've recently purchased a new notebook, and the items on the screen were incredibly small. I used the 'make text or other items larger or smaller' option in control panel and set it to 150%.
The problem is when I run Camtasia studio and go to record the screen the recording section of the screen is only the top left quarter of the screen. Even if I set Camtasia to 'record thw whole screen' it still only records the top left box. I know the problem isn't Camtasia because on another program which allows you to take and edit screenshots, when I take screenshots it only screenshots the top left quarter of my screen.
I tried installing the programs after I had changed the DPI and the problem persists. Is the any way to 'zoom in' so to speak without messing with the DPI and screen ratio's for programs?

Any help is appreciated.

I dont use Cmtasia but I wonder if this will be the answer, pinched from a Google search:
This is a feature called SmartFocus. It is quite handy when used properly. See information here:

To remove this effect in Camtasia, open your project, EDIT>>ZOOM N PAN, then select all the keyframes in the list and click the red X button.
