cannot log off my desktop

We have a pc which 4 of us use, each with our own desktop. My desktop has recently stopped logging off and hangs on the desktop page, without the icons. I do the usual Start - Log off and it initially looks as if it is working and then switches back to the desktop and simply hangs there for ever. The only way to get out of it is to turn the pc off. It doesn't happen with the other users. Any suggestions?
