    What browser do you use?
    Internet Explorer 6:
    Go to Tools - Internet Options and press all the delete buttons one after another, and say yes if it asks if you want to delete or not.

    Internet Explorer 7, 8:
    Select Tools - Delete Browsing History... and press Delete all at the bottom of the window. Confirm that you want to delete these files (yes) and press ok.

    Firefox 2/3
    Go to Tools - Clear Private Data (or press CTRL+SHIFT+DELETE), select all the checkboxes and press ok.

    That should work.
