New User Question

My student and I were using the program when he experienced a problem with the program. He can no longer to get the shapes to display, nor can he change the fill color within the shape (he makes a Star but cannot see it, or makes a rectangle, and it displays nothing.

Now this has happened on a second computer in our classroom. Any suggestions or solutions to the problem?
