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?

    Did it, still have the same "other user" icon and hers is not found. Have
    to go to my page and open her login.
