This could be related to settings, the actual application you are using, or the new hot-key Alt-J added in the 1.50 Release 4. First, make sure you are running the most current release - From The Magnifier Menu | Help | About, it should indicate Version 1.50, Release 4. Then try a built in windows app like WordPad, and try using Alt-J to toggle the text caret tracking - When on, the magnification focus will follow the text caret, and when Off, it will stick only to the mouse cursor. This should work with WordPad (unless there are other settings or configuration issues in Windows 7). Once this works, then you can try your other applications and make sure everything functions with the text caret tracking. You can find the actual settings in the Advanced menu here: Advanced Menu "Track Text Caret" / "Track Dialogs & Keyboard" should be on for tracking focus / text caret. Note that there is a trade-off, in that if the mouse cursor moves a certain amount, it will override and cancel the text/keyboard focus tracking, so the mouse should be idle when using these modes.
