password protection - folders/individual files

P: n/a

I have been using two forms of password protection:

A) On working web sites I use an ASP script that is included in every page
requiring protection: uses session - works fine

B) On quick test sites or temporary stuff I use the Windows Network
Authentication provided by my web host. A whole folder is protected at once
which is very convenient but it has a problem. If a user types the wrong
password and is denied access, the next time they go to type the password,
their browser sometimes remembers the wrong password as so they go straight
to the 'access denied' 401 page.
How to proceed?

1) Does anyone know of a way of preventing all browsers from cacheing the
login info

2) Is there any way of using ASP to protect whole folders?

Thanks for any help, information or advice
