    In IE, clear the history, cache files and any favorites and bookmarks.
    There are alo a bunch of cleanup programs that do this.

    Also disable the password save option !

    CCleaner I think is one.

    I hope this helps !

    Greetings MariaHalt,

    Open Internet Explorer -> Click on 'Tools' menu - Internet Options -> Click on 'Content' tab -> Click on 'AutoComplete' button -> Click on 'Clear Forms'  -> Click OK when confirmation message appears -> Click on 'Clear Password' button -> Click OK when confirmation message appears.

    You may also clear Cookies, Offline Files, History. You will find these options in 'General' tab.
    Click on 'Delete Cookies' button  -> Click on OK when confirmation box appears.
    Click on 'Delete Files' button -> Check 'Delete all offline files' -> OK
    Click on 'Clear History' button - Click on Yes when confirmation box appears.

    Hope this helps!
