need to flush credentials cache - SBS 2003 - user automatically logs in to Sharepoint as me

I have an interesting problem. We are running a Small Business Server 2003 domain at work. We have just had a consultant come in with his own machine. He is often working remotely, and I don't necessarily want to make his machine part of the domain, but I have given him an e-mail account. So he has a login and access to our Sharepoint Services.

We also have a printer that is shared through the SBS.

When he first came in, I set up our printer on his machine by adding network printer and typing in the server name thusly: \\sbs\printer_name . at this point it asked for the domain credentials of someone who was allowed to add the printer. Stupidly I put in mine instead of his.

Now when he goes to our Sharepoint site, he is automatically logged in as me. Somehow the credentials from the printer addition were saved and passed on. I have had him remove the printer, and he's restarted his machine. He's removed all his temp files and cookies, but the credentials persist. I have now reproduced this on another machine as well.

our sharepoint site is set to deny anonymous access, and to allow only integrated windows authentication as an auth method.

What can i do to bust this cache?
