Launcher Black Screen

I've been looking around and noticing that a lot of people are experiencing the same thing with the launcher being nothing but a black screen, so last thing I want is to make another thread, but running out of options.
When launching the launcher, it shows the League of Legends icon and starts the PvP.net patcher, but there's nothing but a black box where the launcher should be. Can't move the box or interact with it and can only close it with task manager.

I tried a clean reinstall (which I hate to do because my internet speed is so slow) and the same thing happened. I'm using Windows XP and everything is up to date; I have been able to play League with no real problems for the past few months.

I've heard I may need to post the RADS/rads_lol_launcher log so it should be in attachments.

Yep, same problem. I can only close it via task manager, although I can interact with my black screen, usually a link that takes me to the merch store or the news section. Any answer to this problem would be awesome.

The other thing that sucks about this was that this was the week that Renekton was free and I really wanted to play him some more and after this week i was going to buy him but i dont have enough IP... I wonder if we are going to get any RP because we got screwed out of a week of LoL so far... xD

There are two launcher logs. Can you attach them both? I'd love to take a look at them.

Also, i know its kind of selfish, but do ppl who have this problem get free RP because i was planning on getting renekton this week >.< and that really took a chunk out of my time to get him seeing as i dont get alot of time to earn IP...
