Hello,
Is it possible to locate specific temporary Internet information in Internet Explorer 7 such as cookies, etc., or information specific to a particular website?  If so, can you explain how to do it and if not, are there any roundabout ways to do it? My reason for asking is that I have one particular website which I use every day that has somehow saved login and other user information for someone else. As a result, there are several functions within the website which I cannot use because this particular website only makes those functions available to one specific primary user. Therefore, although I can log into the site with my own username and password, the other user's info is stored as the primary user. I have tried logging out and logging in again several times to no avail. The only option I can think of is to delete the temporary Internet files and then start over. However, I have numerous other temporary files which I do not want to delete. That's the reason I'm wondering if the file for a specific website can be identified, located and deleted.
Thank you

The location is here for Windows XP:
C:\Documents and Settings\yourUserName\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files
And here for Windows Vista:
C:\Users\yourUserName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files

From IE's main menu, go to Tools, Internet Options and click on Settings in the Browsing history section. Press a button marked "View Files" to review the contents of your Temporary Internet Files. You should be able to find the ones you want to delete based on the website address or the name of the person.
