    IE logs me out on all sites regulary. It can happen any time. Some time I
    work for a 3 days and everything is OK, sometimes it could happen next day or
    after OS restart.. So this is really annoying and happens on all my 3
    different computers with Win7 HP and Pro x86 and x64 even on absolutelly
    clean system! There is no any software which can clean temporary internet
    files, etc. I can't find reason and now I'm sure this is IE bug. Is there any
    workaround?

    How did you determine that Internet Explorer is the software that logs
    you out and not, for example, a third-party application or malware?

    Are these sites that use cookies? If so, when you're closing IE to you get
    any errors? For instance, do you have to forcibly terminate the IE process
    because something has crashed (normally an add-on)? If so, I've had this
    frequently with IE8, as far as I can tell there must be some sort of index
    to valid cookies and if IE is terminated before this index is updated it
    treats any cookies changed compared to the index as "suspect". I think this
    is some sort of security feature to prevent cookie injection from running
    code.

    My only tip if you're seeing the same as I am is to not terminate the IE
    processes if at all possible, and avoid using buggy add-ons that lock up the
    IE processes.
