    I've been having a problem lately where my Vista won't log off, so if I try shutting the computer down it will just get stuck at the logging off screen forever. I've done a system restore and it did not help and I'm not sure what else to do. I've searched around and seems like many people have had this problem but I can't find a solution!

    Also I've noticed that only won't log off if other people are logged in as well, so if only 1 account is logged in it will have no trouble logging off, but if you switch users and have more then one person logged on then the problem will occur. So not using switch user has become my temporary solution but I'd like a better one please.

    Well before it started I downloaded a pc game using a torrent file, could that be the problem?

    It could be, maybe the game has something running all the time and doesn't stop. When you log off, Windows usually waits for programs to quit nicely.
