The previous 'sessions' are remembered through cookies set in IE.
To change the default cookie behavior, go into the privacy settings:

Tools-->Settings-->Privacy-->Advanced-->
Check the box 'Override automatic cookie handling
Block first party cookies, block 3rd party cookies.

This will ensure that no sessions are remembered.

Also - to clear out existing session memory (existing cookies), use the Temporary Internet Files --> Settings as mentioned by the user above

Thanks for your help on the Temporary Internet Files & browser history.

I am using IE 7; I do not see the Tools-->Settings option. Could you guide me where else it could be?
