Windows 7: Why is the logout button so difficult to find?

It's at the top on the skin I use but it's something I don't use anyway, I never log out just just log into another one if I'm leaving, but then I am the only one who uses this machine so it's OK.
Usually when I leave here though it's the last thing I do on the computer as I'm going to shut down so I just close the browser down when I've finished, which I'll be doing shortly

Something like this, always at the top right would be great.

Many sites have a hard to find logout link. recently my bank revamped its site and added a large blue log out button.
I keep trying to push your button but I still can't logout

I had a difficult time finding the logout button in the beginning.
Why is that way?

Not so self explanatory.

If you mean for this website, then I'm not sure why it was so difficult since there's a "log out <your-username>" link at the bottom of every page in this site.
So that's where it lurks !!
