Why are my sessions timing out after 15 seconds?

I've got a user that continuously gets timed out after logging on to 2 different web sites. It doesn't matter if she's idle or not, it times her out in 15 seconds.

It only happens on these 2 specific web sites, and it's only happening from 1 workstation. All my other users can logon to these 2 web sites and use them without issue.

Any ideas where I might look?

hullc65203--Just guessing.  Perhaps those sites require cookies and cookies are being blocked on that PC.  One place would be IE Tools|Internet Explorer|Privacy tab--both the slider setting and the Advanced tab.
What version of IE is being used?  Is this something new?  If so try a System Restore.

XP Home Edition with SP3. Using IE 7, fully patched. The cookies settings are the same as the other computers in the office.

It seems to only happen on 2 web sites, not others.

Ok, I found it. She had installed a Google-like browsing helper. Once uninstalled the issue resolved.
