Best thing to do is to disable cookies.

In IE - Internet Options.. Security... Custom
then disable cookies that are stored on your computer, and once-per-session cookies, OR
just disable stored cookies and close your browser fully before letting anyone else use it

In Netscape - Edit... Preferences.. Advanced and disable cookies.

You can also delete cookies by clearing your cache manually. Cookies are usually easy to find in Windows Explorer in your browser cache folder, and can be deleted manually.

From a programming point of view, if you want to write a cookie just for the session, so that it isn't stored on the computer, you can do this by not setting an expiry date. That way it will only last until the end of the session. You could give your user a dialog box like "Close your browser before anyone else uses the computer" as a security tip.

you can do one thing when you go to the next page
<a href="javascript:locations.replace(your nextpage address)"></a>

This will not allow the user to go back by using back button.
This is for netscape.

you can check from which page he is accessing login page using
'Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_REFERER")
you can check like

if Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_REFERER") = "your password page's URL" then
    allow him to proceed
else
   redirect him to password page
end if

I think this will solve your problem
