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 http://www.walkernews.net/2009/03/26/use-ie8-nomerge-option-to-login-multiple-accounts-of-same-site/

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.

Continued:

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.
