Windows 7: Blank Magnifier

Blank Magnifier

When I open the magnifier a blank window appears. This occurs in both the "lens" and "docked" mode. Full Screen mode seems to be OK. Any ideas about this?

Perhaps give this a try:

Start> Type Ease of Access in search box

Click on: Make the computer easier to use

Uncheck: Turn On Magnifier

Apply and OK your way out

Repeat and recheck Turn On Magnifier

It's likely using SFC would correct it, but perhaps someone else will have other ideas?

Some of us old guys (don't be fooled by the picture which was taken 40 years ago when I was 39) don't understand some of the computer jargon. What is sfc anyway?

Magnifier does not respond
Though magnifier.exe has disappeared from Accessories, I do know how to find it. However, it does not work as it should; it stalls everything until I stop it in Task Manager, which clearly states magnifier is "not responding." How can I get it fixed?
