Check ~/Library/LaunchAgents, (where ~/ is Unix shorthand for your home folder)
I assume you mean the folder in the Users folder, which is an icon of a house.
The Library is an invisible file so I used Command/Shift/Period to view and the LaunchAgent folder contains only one file - com.dropbox.DropboxMacUpdate.agent.plist
Don't worry about anything in /Library as those are common to both you and your wife.
I figured, if I was poking around anyway, I’d take a quick look there too. The LaunchAgent folder has a bunch of plists but I do note that one has a very strange name - com.adobe.ARMDCHelper.cc24aef4a1b90ed56a725c38014c95072f92651fb65e1bf9c8e43c37a23d420d.plist
……Check System Preferences > Users & Groups > Login Items.
This list has five items with the cautionary yellow triangle and all are described as Kind Unknown. None has an icon other than the ‘blank sheet’. They are:
Canon IJ Network Scanner
Microsoft AU Daemon
Note: There is a second “DiskWarriorStarter” item with a proper icon and it is described as “Application”
Another thought is corrupted user cache files.
I own Cocktail so I used it to clear my User Cache files. Cocktail came back with a dialogue box that said “Unable to clear all caches. Some caches have not been properly cleared. See Activity Log for details.” The log said:
