    I have winxp and use IE 8. My problem is that I have 2 usernames on some web
    forums. I used to be able to login using both usernames and have both
    instances running simultaneously. Now I can't. Everytime I'm logged in and
    try to initiate another instance the username just changes. It does not allow
    me to open 2 IEs with 2 usernames at the same time. I'm pretty sure this is
    just a setting but I don't know where it is. The reason I think it's an IE
    setting is that when I try to login with a competitor browser as the 2nd
    user...it allows it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Try using the File, New Session command?
