Session values lost when Response.Redirect method is called

Hello,

I have moved my web site over from IE6 to IE8 and have noticed that session values are being lost. So I excluded the .config file from being scanned by the anti virus software i am using and have included the following in my .config file:
<sessionState mode="InProc" timeout="50000" cookieless="false">

Session values are now being lost when Response.Redirect method is called.
Any clues why this is occuring and how it can be solved?

No, i am using the Response.Redirect("~/Default.aspx",false) but this does not help me. The website was working perfectly until i upgraded my explorer from IE6 to  IE8.

Sorry, this does not help me. I have tested the same website in IE 6 and it works fine, but in IE 8, sessions that are set, are null when i Redirect.

I clear out the page from the cache before redirected. I noticed that when coming back to the page, the page is not rebuilt, but just reloaded from the cache.
I also added this code:
<meta http-equiv="pragma" content="no-cache">. This solves my problem.
