Well a friend of mine is running Windows XP SP2 Home Edition. All of the sudden everything in his window has turned black. Its like everything is blacked out. I have provided a screenshot of what everything looks like. He has the Start Menu up, Ventrilo, and X Fire. Any help would be appreciated. Heres a direct link to the screenshot.

I have also tried having him run like ComboFix and SmitfraudFix just to see if he could. But he can't even run those. He hits 1 then Enter, and it just closes on him.

I would try switching back to a normal Windows theme, I had a similar problem once on a computer, I had to set two computer side to side and set them for the same resolution and open the Control Panel on the one I could see and read eferything and the move the mouse to the same position on the other one and by trial and error I was able to get it back to normal.
