Slow log off - "saving your settings" takes long time

On a computer running W2000, non-administrator user takes a long time to log off - stays at "saving your settings" for a long time. This happens whether logging off the network or not connected to the network, so I presume something is being copied to the hard disk??

The username in question isn't listed in Control Panel -> Users and Passwords.

I have emptied temp internet files, all temp files etc but it does not seem to make much difference.

I am a newbie at policies etc so if I have to set a policy please step me through it.

Thanks

Didn't see any of the events mentioned by the KB article - but I tried the UPHClean program anyway, and it works like a charm. Must check the monitoring settings.

Thanks!
