Everything I look at looks distorted, only on my main user, the colors are all off, and everything has a shadow behind it. Im not sure how to really explain, reminds me of a computer from 10 years ago..

Thanks for the detailed update.

Try this:

• Click on the Apple menu icon and select System Preferences
• Now select System Preferences from the drop down menu.
• Locate and open Universal Access

• Now click the Radio button for Black on White


Let me know if that turns your screen back to its normal color resolution.
If this works, what happened was the screen was inverted which is why it looked more like a shadow, if my assessment of what you see, is correct that is.

Thanks for your patience, I await your update.
