Dear BleepingComputer,

whenever someone is bored could they please explain to me the following:

(for example) In "Folder Options" under View there is now an "ON" or "OFF" displayed next to each entry. Not so in my other admin. account. Any ideas how to turn this off? I would just like to know how this feature was turned on in the first place.

second, when I go to Start->Shut Down I get the usual screen with the pull down options of "restart, shutdown, etc.." Now the surrounding screen isn't being dimmed to gray scale, instead it stays in all of its colors.

I have tried the above two things in my other admin. account, it does not do this.

Any ideas?

This happens because Magnifier is being opened on your computer. Just close Magnifier and these "ON/OFF" will be gone.
