Ok here are a few things to try
1) I would try disabling the windows logoff sound and see what happens since that is quite often one of the reasons logoff can take a while
2) But I also found this next solution which makes allot of since and could be very helpful to you since it will allow you to see exactly what windows get stuck on when you log off:


3) This is what Microsoft has to say about it …

This behavior can occur if Internet Explorer is installed on the computer, and your user profile contains a large Temporary Internet Files folder (cache).

To work around this behavior, use any of the following methods:

Empty your Temporary Internet Files folder each time you quit Internet Explorer. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
  2. Double-click Internet, and then click the Advanced tab.
  3. Under Security, click the "Delete saved pages when browser closed" check box to select it, and then click OK. NOTE: This does not delete content in the Cookies, History, or Subscription folders.
4) It could also be a network setting that is wrong could cause similar problem but then you would also have slow logon too

This happens when too many application are opened at the same time, and closing them will take time because the PC's memory his full running different applications at the same time. To avoid this close other applications when your not using them.

When trying to reset password I accidentally opened a new account.So every time I enter new password,it takes me to new account.I want my old one back?

You don't say WHAT you are trying to log in to, but there are two ways.

Log in to the new account and then click Log Out. Then carefully log in with the old account details.

Download CCleaner and run it. It will clear the cache and cookies that is remembering the log in.

My Toshiba laptop is stuck in logging off mode. How can I fix this?

if you have a program running that is non responsive and try to shut down or restart, the computer will get stuck on the logging off screen. Often times if a computer takes a long time to do anything, it means you need to defrag your hard drive. Manually shut down the computer (you might have been pushing the Sleep button. If you can't figure it out, just unplug it and let the battery run down.) and when you restart it, go to the My Computer or Computer option, right click on your C drive, click on properties and a window should pop up. Click on the tab that says Tools and click on the Defragmentation option. The rest should be pretty self-explanatory. If nothing works. please try logging in as administrator in safe mode and doing a system restore.... please see Using Windows Vista System Restore :: the How-To Geek

Long log in time of my computer.

if you are talking about teh time that it takes to open from the boot to the desktop ...this is caused mainly by the ram memory and the CPU even if you have a great cpu and a large frequency on it ..if you have little ram memory on it it will take a long time to boot ...anyway sometimes after the system is overloaded with updates and all kinda programs that starts with windows...this willl also cause a long time to boot...
so ..if you know that it used to start faster ...just reinstall it clean and will start again like it used to ..or ..another thing ...if you are running windows Xp and you updated on xp sp3 this is another cause for delaying the log in ...
if you are talking about logging in on the web ...or any other program connected to the internet this is only depending on the internet connection ...and the bugs that you have on i t..
If you know it used to run faster on the internet ..also a reinstall will fix it ..

My windows xp will log onto the welcome screen, but will not log

hi i am techbuddies from fixya group i want to give a try to solve your problem
first of all try to boot your computer in safe mode with networking and you can do this by pressing F8 on your keyboard for 10 times while starting your computer ,check that wether you are able to log on to your computer .if you are able to log in then try to take a back up of all your data and then try to create a new profile ,because might be possible the profile that you are trying to log on to on normal mode might have gone corrupted .
if it does not work please get back to me on fixya or on my email address
i would try to take a remote of the computer and would try to solve the problem .
