Laptop log-in

    Didn't have any luck getting an answer in Microsoft forums, I'll try here.

    This just started one day. My wife and I share a laptop. We have separate
    log-ins and we both have admin rights. Her log-in icon has disappeared and
    it now comes up as "other user", but her login info doesn't work.
    If I go to users accounts I can open her account, and as long as I hibernate
    and not shut down, her icon remains.
    In user accounts it shows 3 accounts, both ours and Guest which is not
    turned on.

    Not totally sure when this started because she doesn't use the laptop that
    often and I just usually just stay logged in. I hate to roll back all of
    the updates. I use Acronis and did a recovery from a week ago but it did
    same thing.
    Any ideas?
