After Effects Won't Display Video

So yesterday when I opened up Photoshop I had this problem where the canvas had disappeared. I solved this be disabling openGL. Today I'm having basically the same problem but in After Effects, where no video is displayed. (Here's a screenshot : http://postimg.org/image/dfmyeocf7/ ) Same thing happens in the Layer viewer and footage (Link for layer viewer : http://postimg.org/image/iiu5cu4rr/ and footage : http://postimg.org/image/enw34m2pv/ ) Anyone have any ideas? Would having the theme as windows basic have any effect on this?

What is this "Spell Effect" layer? What does it do? What kind of footage is it?

I think you're trying to use AE intuitively, which is certain to get you into trouble.

Rather than learn AE on your own, learn it from the pros. Go here:

The project has no effect. If you want I could show you screenshots of a blank project and you will see the same results. Yes I am trying to learn it on my own (looking at tutorials here and there) and there has been no problem. One minute ae was working the next not :/ Any Ideas? I think the photoshop problem is related.

If this is AE CC 2015, I'd download AE CC 2014 and use it instead. The brand-new version has a bug list as long as your arm. Very frustrating and befuddling for the newcomer.

It's After Effects CS6 so I'm not sure.

Edit: Tried a complete reinstall. No changes sadly :/ Now I'm going to update my windows then completely wipe all adobe programs and reinstall the ones I need as this problem came about after installing one.

Looking at the images you posted, the preview cursor is positioned at the 0 time mark where no images are possible. Just move it forward in the timeline.

Ok, did what you said Thomas, no change. I also changed project to prove it wasn't a one off in a project. (Screenshot : http://postimg.org/image/4zc8zwn6l/ )

Ok, after much trouble shooting I started messing around with the programs I had running. I use this program called windows blinds and it seems while that program is running I cannot see the video. (Screenshot One : http://postimg.org/image/4zc8zwn6l/ ) when I disable the program and close it the video is visible again. (Screenshot Two : http://postimg.org/image/4w1v9zrph/ ) I'm not sure why this is caused and I don't remember seeing anything on the windows blind website saying this would happen but anyway, I fixed it :) Thanks to everyone who tried to help.
