Try my computer/drive C/documents and settings/all users/ programs. Drag some shortcuts there for her.
Spike's advice: Backup your data routinely.

I think the "My Computer" he is talking about can be found using Windows Explorer, not the Icon on your desktop of the same name.

What permissions have you given your wife's account? Did you list her as a user or limit her account in some way?
