A screenshot is not a multilayered file. There is no information behind to reveal.

I am afraid it is not possible to reveal what was under the 'paint'.  That area is full black, and there is simply not information to work on. 

What are you expecting to find under the blacked out areas?  It looks like redacted information — perhaps a user name someone wants to keep private.  In this instance their privacy is going to remain intact.

As Trevor said, there is no layer of information beneath the black. The information that was in that area has been replaced with sold black and is gone.

No

If that is a single layer then there is nothing that will recover the blacked out area. Those pixels are black (albeit with some low level noise).  If you have a legitimate reason to do this then go to the original document
