    I was away from work for a while and when I returned I found one of the Macs has been played with by a Student and now it has two lots of Shut Down, Log Out, and Force Quit in the Apple menu, and whatever you have in focus (if you've got a file selected, or window selected, or a menu item) it's got a big black square outline around it. I haven't a clue of what's happened!

    I had the double menu items from time to time and was resolved by a log out and log back in again.

    The black box sounds a bit like universal access (system preferences). Does your computer speak to you? If so press cmd+F5 if not look through Universal access.

    I think you're on the right track: Mac OS X 10.4: Some Apple menu items appear twice ;)
