    I had to rebuild my laptop about a month ago. Windows XP, SP3, all updates
    in place. When I log off, the laptop appears to log off part way, to the
    point of the Wireless Network Connection, then just sets there until I log
    off again, then the laptop logs off, and I can shut down. Ctrl-Alt-Del shows
    "no" processes running. Occasionally the laptop will log off on the first
    try to the shut down screen. I can live with it but wonder if anyone has an
    answer for my problem. Thank you.

    Thanks Peter, however the hive cleanup utility did not seem to make any
    change. Still have to log off twice. Re started the laptop several times, no
    change.

    Some software is not playing nice on your system. Look in the Processes
    of Task Manager and compare which ones are running before the first
    attempt to shut down as opposed to what is running the second time. Then
    of the processes that are missing, try killing them one at a time and
    then shutdown. When the shutdown works the first time, you have
    identified the problem software.
