first I suggest you edit you post to delete your user names. These
should not be posted (for your own privacy). You need to log out your husband or any other user.
On the blue header bar of the Facebook page there are a series of icons to the right of "home" ...
Go to the icon on the end that looks like a down arrow.
Click it to reveal a drop-down menu with the "logout" option about 3/4 of the way down the list. Click "logout" and you'll log out the active user (your husband) and you will be taken to a fresh login screen page. Enter your User and Password info to log back into your account.
Power on your machine, let it log onto your Windows User, when you bought or upgraded your Windows to Windows 8, you were asked to create a Windows User Account, default would of been a Windows 8 Microsoft Log in like your Microsoft Log in, firstname.lastname@example.org or @live.com or @live.ie and so one.
Try log on using your Microsoft Password.
If you clicked Local Account, then this account does not need a password, you can bypass the step.
This sounds like when the drivers were installed they were installed with the option of "just this user" instead of all or any users. You can try running the install software again and switch it if it lets you. If not you will need o uninstall it then re install with all users selected. That should get you and everyone else working.
as the computer is loading press F* repeatedly until you reach a black sceen with options you need to highlight option safe mode, once on the safe mode logon screen choose administrator, this logs you to the main user, this is where you can change user acounts who log onto the mechine, goto control panel and left click on user acounts, in here remove all acount passwords and click on change the way user log on or off and uncheck each section and reboot the mechine, hopefully you will have a diferent log on screen just log in with your user name and password and you should avoid the rebooting. hope this helps and post back if it is still the same.

Have I got this right. You want to prevent them from logging on to a particular pc without a username and password?
If the server is off the domain is not active to validate requests for authentication.
It might help me understand what you are trying to do if you tell me why you want this computer isolated as the solution I am thinking about may not be the right one. Is it in a public area or do you want to prevent guest users or some other reason.
Look forward to your next posting.
