running asp.ent locally

Dear Expert.

I am testing an ASP.NET 3.5 app.  I found there is a series of messy codes behind the root directory of my project when I run locally.  The url becomes like


What is the messy codes inserted into the url?  Is this due to I added session variables?  I dont' think I saw this a few days ago, then it started to pop up.
Will this code appear when the project is deployed to web server?

go to web config and check cookieless session settings .. i am sure it must be true .. set it to false .. and test
That code in the url is the 'forms authentication ticket'. Usually the authentication ticket is stored in a cookie. But when cookies are turned off, the ticked is put in the url. This article explains the details: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa480476.aspx
