I'd first install an antivirus such as AVG, and scan the system thoroughly.  If Symantec/Norton is installed, I'd remove it and install something else.

Then run a rootkit detector such as AVG's rootkit product or Microsoft's Rootkit Revealer, and again scan the system thoroughly.

Then run a malware detector such as Spybot to see if there's malware in the system.

Once the system is proven clean, if the problem persists, it will then be productive to chase other possibilities.

this was a problem with certain computers when xp was first installed, i thought the service packs had sorted this out. If you go to microsofts site there was a link to download a fix to certain makes of computer. If i am right then you will solve the problem quikly. best of luck

i am suggesting that this is not a virus. i am saying that certain motherboards in certain pcs had a problem from closing down when xp was first installed. this was a problem that is easily fixed by going to microsoft site and searching with your computer name there may be a fix.

if this is on a network do you have mapped drives ? also make sure all your device drivers are up to date.

does the same thing happen when you do restart ?

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

mshakeb,
Glad the problem is resolved.   But for the record did UPHClean make any improvement at all on your machine hanging at logoff ?
