  • Hi,

    from IE select the Tools>InPrivate browsing menu, then type in www.facebook.com and then click the sing-in button.

    Important.... make sure you close the InPrivate browser window when you finish, otherwise your brother will be able to trash your FB. InPrivate browsing does not use cookies or record your surfing history and will leave your brothers user account unaffected.

    Generally it is not a good idea to share a computer.(even with 'trusted' siblings)... Windows 7 and earlier has a built-in 'Guest' Account (password not required) that you can use to share a computer, or you can create separate User Accounts (Start>Control Panel>Users) for each person that shares the computer.

    Regards.

  • Try deleting the browser cookies.

    1. Tools -> Internet Options -> General tab -> Delete
    2. Untick "Preserve Favorites website data"
    3. Tick "Temporary Internet files and website files" and "Cookies and website data"
    4. Click "Delete".

    After finishing deleting, restart the browser.
