internet explorer 8 saving username and password information

We have recently upgraded a number of workstations to internet explorer 8. Our employees use an older ASP intranet application.  The application requires a username and password to access it.  Once you log in you can search by customer number.  The issue is since we upgraded to internet explorer 8 if you open the intranet application and log in and search on a customer.  Then open another IE tab and access the application it has the username and password saved as well as the customer number searched on from the previous IE tab.  You actually have to remove the customer number to search on a new customer.  I am not sure why IE is saving the information on this form.  I have turned auto complete off.  Does anyone know what setting is controlling this behavior in IE 8?  Please advise.

This is due to the fact that in IE 8, the session state is shared between tabs.

One solutions would be to add the following config setting to your ASP application:

<sessionState mode=InProc cookieless=UseUri></sessionState>

This will append the session information to the URL instead of using cookies, thereby enabling the user to open the application in a new session every time he opens it in a new tab.

I guess this setting works only in ASP .NET .... Im sorry.... Let me research for some possible workarounds for ASP 3

Does any one else have any other recommendations?
