I don't like the way the zoom tool works in Photoshop CS5. How do I change it back to the way it worked in previous versions?

When I click and drag with the zoom tool it no longer makes a marquee selection to zoom in. How do I change it back to how it worked in previous versions of Photoshop?

I've been using Photoshop since CS3, though mostly CS5 and some CS6, and just upgraded my workstation to CC and was beginning to become frustrated after going through all the "Preferences" and unchecking the different "zoom" checkboxes. I like the "marquee selection zoom" the best - don't think I could live without it, you don't realize how much you utilise a tool until it is swapped out with a less useful tool! It's like trying to sculpt a work of art out of stone with a phillips head screwdriver and a steel toed boot instead of a hammer and chisel. Uncheck "Scrubby Zoom" Hooray!!!!! Feeling of won-ton godzilla-like wrath, destruction and irritation has turned to peaceful serenity! Thank you for explaining how to turn off the new zoom feature!
