    My wives account has disappeared of another computer.I know the account exists but when I check user accounts it's missing. The thing is it is there cos I am connected to it via mstsc. So, how do I get it back.

    Dude try this only if u found no other way to find disappeared account that is reset all your pc settings by going to
    Change account picture > General > Refresh your Pc without affecting files.
    You can also try other method if u do not want ot reset all your settings.
    Change account picture > General > advance startup and then select restore image before the date where problem occor.
