    I need help, my mac books seems to be weirding out.

    Several things happening, including:
    1- strange black boxes appearing around icons etc (see pics)
    2- Double, "restart" "shutdown" and "log out" appearing in my menus (see pics)
    3- brightness keys not working.

    Please help me fix and or all of these problems, I would really appreciate it!!!

    for the first two things, you might have some kind of universal access option selected.

    The first two are 99% likely to be a voice setting turned on in Universal Access.

    Open System Preferences and check it.
