Error Message while logging off XP user account

Hello everyone. I have a quick question, that has me confused. Occassionally, when I log off of my administrator account (Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2) th process initially slows down then an error message briefly appears, so quick I can read it but I can distinquish the read cicrle with white x on left side, then disappears and the process of logging off completes. It seems if something was wrong it would allow me to address the error message, and that really confuses me. Any ideas as to how I can find out what is causing the error message? Thanks for your help, and happy New Year.

How I figure this one out.

I open the EVENT VIEWER and then clear it. Now I logoff to create the error and log back in to open the EVENT VIEWER to see if it tells me any clues about the item.
