Try rebooting in Safe Mode and seeing if you can reproduce the problem there.  If you cannot, then it may be related to a third-party software that's causing the hang.

You can also look at this article for additional options:

The best place to start is in the Event Logs. The logs will tell you what service or application is hanging during the log off process. You should look under the System and Application logs. Let us know what you find out and what errors you find.

Side note: You need to get rid of Server 2003 because it will be losing support next year. It is also a ten year old operating system.
