    Is there a way to log out completely from the forum? Mom uses my computer and hers to get on the BYC forum which is no problem but when I won't to log on it will not let me.

    I have deleted cache, cookies everything and it'll eventually log her out but when I click log on it logs on mom and not me.

    I am posting this from her account now aka FleenorFarmMom my account is UnttouchableRose.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    if she is logged on just hit the log out button on the top of the page, then hit log on and enter your username and password and log on.

    I am only posting this because none of that works. [​IMG] I can click on logout all day long and it does nothing....

    The only thing that keeps you logged in is your cookies. If those are cleared out completely (and your cache) then there is something odd going on local to your PC. Do you have any optimization / security programs running on that PC?

    Quote:I cleared the cookies on the main hard drive. However I was told that AOL has cookies you have to delete. I just can't find them????

    I have AOL Premium Service so everything is run from AOL it has all kinds of security stuff. I don't have this problem with any other forum which is what I thought was odd. I dumped my cached today and got it logged off. When I clicked log in it automatically logged her in never gave me a chance to put my info in.

    If it's any help my computer at work did the samething with everything dumped.

    We must be cursed! LOL

    Go into your profile and the other user name and under "privacy", uncheck the remember user name and password option. That should stop the problem.
