When viewing pics taken from window, display has an x-ray look to a portion of the picture that is flashing on and off. For example, I took a picture of my dog in the yard, only his tail and portion of leg is flashing from normal color to black and grey in the picture viewer. The rest of the pic is fine...including background. Picture prints turn out fine. I can't figure out how to make this go away. I changed battery and recharged existing battery...which makes me think it must be a setting. Not sure if I modified a setting to cause this or what it is from. Any suggestions?

There's nothing wrong. The blinking areas are blown-out highlights. These are the portions of your picture that the camera thinks are overexposed. While viewing the picture, press cursor-up/down to cycle through the different views of your picture.
Overlaying pictures, like almost all photo manipulations, is better done on a computer using "real" software rather than on a camera. You get much more control on a computer. However, the D40 does have a wide repertoire of photo manipulation capabilities.
In order to overlay images, you must be shooting in RAW (or RAW+JPEG). Select Image Overlay from the Retouch menu. A preview dialog will be displayed with Image 1 highlighted. Press OK to get a photo selection dialog. Use left/right to highlight the first picture in the overlay. (You can press and hold the Zoom button to see the selected photo fullscreen.) Press OK to select the image. Optimize exposure for the image by pressing up/down. Press left/right to highlight Image 2. Select the second image the same way. Press left/right to highlight the Preview column. Overlay will show you the result, allowing you to go back and change things if you wish. Save will save the overlaid photo.
The shadow in the lower portion of your camera is probably caused by the lens hood. The solution is simple: remove the lens hood whenever you're using the built-in flash.
If you simply want to see the date and time on the screen, press up/down while reviewing your pictures until you get the view you want.
If you want the date and time printed on the pictures, that needs to be done in whatever program you use to print. For example, Nikon ViewNX has a "Print Photo Information" check box in its Print dialog.
The camera is not going to damage your pictures by imprinting date and time on any portion of the image. It will record that information (and a lot more), but its priority is on getting the image data.
