Every time we try to create something, it goes black then the layer goes back to white. Why is this doing this? And how can I fix it?

Which application are you using?
Which version?
Which OS version?

If you're using Windows 8 and Photoshop, there is a known bug in Windows itself that causes flashing and bad display results. The solution is usually to update your video card driver from the GPU maker's website. The alternative is setting Photoshop's GPU usage to "Basic" (But you lose some performance and features), or disable the GPU in Photoshop (then you lose several features).

Ah, good to know it wasn't me, haha. I just downloaded the trial of the regular photoshop. Just something to toy with. Worst case senario I can mooch off my aunt and use her computer.
