Unhappy Can't stream my desktop

Need a little help.
I downloaded the procaster so I can stream my desktop to friends when I'm drawing but for some reason I can no longer show my desktop. The screen is black and it just shows where my mouse goes by leaving a trail of lagging mouse signs all over the black screen.
Anyone have any ideas as to how to fix this problem as it wasn't happening the entire time. I thought maybe it was my wifi so I set up my direct link and it didn't change so I'm at a loss and I would really like to be able to use this program again.

Sounds like it could be your video card drivers.

Try going into Procaster's preferences --> Desktop tab --> change "effect render method" to "simple". Save your changes.

In the meantime, check if there are any updates to flash and to your video card drivers.

I saved my effect render method to simple and nothing changed. I also checked my updates and found I did need to update my flash, which I did and it did not fix the problems. So I went ahead and checked to see if my video card driver needed any updates and found it was up to date. I restarted my computer just to make sure it would catch my updates and still no change. Do you perhaps have any other ideas as to what may be wrong?
