Internet explorer, Windows XP and asp.net form authentication

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
Hej Experts,

I am having a strange issue with internet explorer, I have no idea it is Internet explorer thats causing it or asp.net forms authentication using Cookies.

Scnario is : I have a web site that has a login page and authentication is built/developed using Asp.net Form authentication and globas.asax etc and problem is on a my computer when i access application through Internet explorer and try to log in, same login page gets refreshed instead of making me logged in and redirect to authenticated zone. I am using Windows XP and Internet explorer 8.0. i was using 7.0 and updating browser did not help. (is there a way to RESET browser completely if this can solve issue?)

I have tries setting all kind of cookies authentication ON etc but to no avail. Please note that same web site works fine if I use Mozilla for example. I am really stuck ,Please direct me about how to solve it. Thanks in advanced.
