Computer won't turn off stuck on logging off page [Solved/Closed]

I tried to turn my Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop off yesterday and it stuck on the "logging off" page. If I hold down the power button, then it shuts down, but when I start it back up again, it just goes right back to the "logging off" page. I tried holding down F8 (to start in safe mode) right after turning it back on, but it just made a loud beeping sound and didn't do it. People with similar problems recommend stuff like virus scans and driver updates, but I can't do any of this because the computer won't start! (Even right now I am using a different computer.)
Does anyone know what I can do to fix this?

I figured it out on my own-- but anyway -- you must hold down the power off key for 10 seconds (2-3 seconds wont work- this puts in sleep mode) - after ten seconds release - it - then wait a minute then power on and windows should boot up fine=-- worked for mine.

I have the same problem with my Dell Inspiron 1525 - Windows Vista Home Premium -

Yesterday when closing down the laptop the system had an automatic update to perform then went onto the logging off screen where it has remained. Powering on and off only returns it to the logging off screen where it remains. Any suggestions?
