    I have these black boxes that are on my screen when I am on the net or when I click into a text box to type. Where did they come from and how can I defeat them?

    Also, when I click on the little apple, I now have 2 shutdown 2 log off and 2 restarts. Again this is causing me mental anguish!! hahahaha can I do something about it?

    Thanks Mac wizards!

    EDIT: the volume buttons on my keyboard, if I press up my dashboard pops up and if I press down the screen minimizes. Weird!

    +1 I'm intrigued. Especially about the thing with the little black boxes. Please post if it's not too much hassle!

    hmmm, that happened to me last week. i was screwing around with a native linux install, then with fusion and parallels. i fixed it by doing a super duper restore.

    i'd like to know your fix as well

    Weird Black Box

    I thought it had something to do with Universal Access in Sys. Prefs...?

    errr...no, I don' think so...

    Black box!

    I am having this exact same problem! Weird black box and duplicate shutdown and restart and log off. How did you fix this?
