Magnifying glass mouse-cursor app?

Hi, can someone recommend a good magnifying glass mouse-cursor mod that can be toggled on/off easily? I think there are various ones out there, but I'm hoping for a recommendation of a good one (like maybe that lets you adjust the glass radius).
It would make using my PC from my couch very comfortable

Thanks for the tip. I looked at it, in the Ease of Access Center in control panel, and the gripe I have with it is that there isn't a quick/easy way to toggle it on or off, and whenever I click somewhere on the screen, it disables the magnifier and closes the magnifier bar - so I have to go back into Ease of Access Center and start it again... but then it disables again whenever I click anywhere.

From reading online, the magnifier program was crashing due to the Intellipoint 7.1 drivers my mouse was using, and updating the drivers to v8 drivers fixed the issue. Additionally, the magnifier function is now mapped to a mouse side-button, so it will be extremely convenient for me to enable / disable with ease. *happy*

It is easy to open and close Microsoft key with + or - on the "keypad". Microsft key + Esc closes it

Mouse Cursor Problems
The mouse cursor is a few inches below where it's supposed to be. Example: The X key on the browser.. I have to place the cursor a few inches (3-4cm) below it to close something. I can't fix this and it's annoying when recording games, making presentations, etc.

Cursor / Mouse problem
My cursor doesn't move as far as my mouse and consequently I'm running off of the mouse pad and repositioning the mouse all the time - very annoying. This is anew emachines computer with Windows 7, but the same wireless mouse and keyboard I've always used. Help would be greatly appreciated.
