My login does not work.

i created this login using sessions just like what was written in Ben Forta's 5th Edition book and this is what happened.

I was in dreamweaver and hit F12 to view my "startuppage.cfm".  The first time i logged in I was able to type the name and password and was able to get it.  Then, I closed the browser, and tried to get in as another user.  I was still successful.  Again I closed the browser.

This time, i tried to open my application from the shortcut in my desktop.  Walla, it did not even asks for a username and password.  I was able to go to the page I want to go to without requiring a username and password.  

Why is that?  My login is not working properly.  What should i do?

Please help.  Thank you in advance

PS.  All users of my application will have to login.  But only Administratrs have the access to the Admin pages.

By the way, i use the basic session method in Ben forta's book.  So, those CFlogout, CFlogin is a bit different from what i am doing
