What browser are you using?

If it is Firefox
Goto Tools
Click Options
Click Privacy
Click Passwords
Click View Saved Passwords
Find the site you do not want the little one to gain access and delete it by highlighting it and
Click Remove
When finished Close out and away you go, and the little on can not have your access to that site using your log on.

When going to that site from now on just do not click to remember anything.

Have a good one. I guess I was too slow typing.

Make sure that "User names and passwords on forms" and "prompt me to save passwords" both do not have check marks in the boxes.
