Internet Explorer 8 Multiple Sessions

I have upgraded to IE8 and I am running our .net application (aspx pages) which use session variables to determine if you are logged in or not. If I start up IE 8 and login to one of oyur websites no problems. Then I start a brand new instance of Ie* from the start menu (not spawned from original session) and it uses the same session state if I go to that website which has me logged in. This is not what i want as I need to log in on one session and make changes in the admin role and then see the changes on the logged out session. Is there a setting in IE8 that can turn this "feature" off?

According to

To overwrite this behaviour, which is also retained in the final release or version 8.0.6001.18702, there is this IE8 option switch -nomerge to start a new browser window in a new, unique session.


Tweak the IE8 shortcut

Regardless how many IE8 shortcut icon there are in your system, just right-click one of the icon that you use most of time to start IE8 browser, select Properties from the pop-up menu, click the Shortcut tab and append -nomerge to the Target text box

Thank you very much. This problem has been a nightmare for me as I do a lot of testing on our software and need to have different sessions running on different terminals. This was worth the subscription to EE for one year alone. Thanks again.
You are most welcome. Glad to have helped.
