I'm not a Windows 8 user, so this is just a guess, but could your wife's account have been set up as an Admin, and somehow your account not have been granted the appropriate permissions?  Maybe your wife decided that you were spending too much time on the computer and decided to take matters into her own hands. ;-p

 

I would look at that, but obviously that isn't specific to Windows 8.  Hope you figure it out!
