Each PC is identified by a session ID that is saved in a cookie, which
you obviously copied in your image to the new PC as well.
If you just want to fix this immediate issue, then clear your browser cache and delete your cookies.
To avoid this issue going forward you can setup the live-time of the session cookies to a shorter period of time (as example to 0:00:00 so they immediately expire once the browser on a PC is closed.
Thanks you pointed me in the correct direction, but my resolve was a little different.
It seems the browser settings were set up to use persistent cookies (stored on local hard drive) if I un-tick this setting and configure the browser to only use session cookies (in memory) I thought this would solve the problem because it would generate a unique cfid, cftoken etc each time a the browser was opened, but it does not work.
When on session cookies are enabled on the browser it forgets all session variables in cold fussion when moving to the next page in my application (which I dont really understand if this is correct or not)
So to get it working all I did was to turn back on persistent cookies and delete all cookie files on the hard drive so it generated a new unique one.
Should I be able to run a browser and have persistent cookies turned off, and only session cookies enabled to hold the cookies in memory and not the local hard drive?
Kind Regards Guy
You can disable session cookies in cfapplication, and manually write the cookie using the cfcookie tag. This way you can set them to immediately expire when the browser is closed.
btw.I hope you appreciate to get this advice for free :-) I've just seen a website where they charge you $4 bugs for it !!!
