    Unhappy screen auto zooms on startup ????
    Hi all

    hope someone can help -

    basically i made the mistake of buying they MICROSOFT (aaarrrgghh) comfort optical mouse 3000 it has this feature which allows a user to zoom at the press of a button. all well and good except my mac now auto zooms on startup which means i cant see a single bloody thing on my screen which means i cant do a thing to prevent this. the zoom button on the mouse doesnt work anymore as the driver is not working aaarrggghh
    i cant download and install a new driver cos i cant see anything on the screen except a giant mouse pointer at full zoom.
    i tried unplugging it and starting the mac with the original mouse but it still zooms in on startup.
    i tried pushing shift on startup and going into safe mode but it still zooms in
    please help
    any ideas people?????

    below is a link to the page of the mouse causing the problems

    When it starts up - and zooms in - hit Command+Option+8. Command being the Apple key.

    Now you can go into System Preferences>Universal Access and mess around under the Seeing tab (I'm on a Windows computer right now, someone else will come along with better info) and turn off Login Items, etc...
    I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.
