XP crashes when logging off

By deckard ·
hi folks,
i got a little problem with my new pc at home.
i installed Windows XP Professional and created three users (me and my wife, both with PowerUser rights, and an account with Administration Rights to install and configure software).

Problem is:
when i am logged on as one user, then change to another user, log off the other user -> the screen goes blank (black that is) and nothing happens anymore. i have to reboot by switching the power off.
when logging off the first user, logging on the other and logging it off again, everything?s fine.
example:
logging on as 'me'
click 'log off' and choose 'change user'
logging on as 'my wife'
logging off 'my wife' ('me' being still logged in)
screen goes blank, hard reboot.

logging on as 'me'
click 'log off' and choose 'log off'
logging on as 'my wife'
logging off 'my wife' ('me' being not logged in)
everything?s sweet as pie.

i hope someone can help me with this.
(sorry if technical terms and names are not all accurate. i?m using a german XP and don?t really know what the right terms in english are.)
