Strange Glitch with Magnifying Glass

Hello,

I've been using Adobe Photoshop 7.0 on my computer for about one year without any hiccups. Recently the magnifying glass has been acting up. When I use it, the default state is the zoom out instead of zooming in. I have to press Alt to get it to zoom in. Does anyone know what's causing this? I'd like to avoid a reinstall if possible.

Thanks,
Tim

Because you have the zoom out tool selected. With the magnifying glass selected in the toolbar, go to your Info bar. The one across the top. There should be 2 magnifying glass icons on the left. One is for zoom out, and one is for zoom in. You have the zoom out tool selected.
