The problem is that when I click on the Apple menu in the top left corner, there are multiple entries for shutdown, log off, and sleep. I know it's on the user level, because I created another account and it was fine (no duplicate entries). My question is can I fix this without having to delete my user account and recreate it? Also, randomly there are black lines that outline windows and icons. These lines form a black line border around some of the windows or some part of the windows in finder and the icons on the Desktop.

Sounds like you have some sort of assistive technology enabled.
In System Preferences, click on Universal Access. If this Voice Over is on, it will double up things in the Apple Menu.
I think this also causes the black box, but otherwise its another setting in Universal Access.

That was it. Thanks. I've never messed with Voice Over, so I had never seen this behavior.
