Logging out of a shared folder

Specs: XP, P4C2.4@3.3/1gb ram

In windows xp if I log into a shared folder or pc on the network it seems that every time I go back to that folder or pc I am automatically
logged in by what ever user/password i had originally but in, until i reboot or log out of my windows user acct. Is there a way to log out
of a shared file session? so for example say i login to \\pc1 using user:John but then i realize that this acct doesnt give me access the
the desired files on \\pc1 so i want to log in using user:AdminJonn, how would I do that without either A rebooting or B login out of
windows and logging back in?

In Windows Explorer, My Computer go to the tools menu, or right-click on My Computer. Choose Disconnect Network Drive. Next time you connect to a network drive, uncheck the "Reconnect at Logon" box"

Rule #1: Good Computers don't go down.
Rule #2: There is no such thing as a good computer.

that doesnt work because im not talking about a network drive, im talking about a shared folder on a pc that has the "simple file sharing" disabled which you have to login to access. once you login to that shared folder on the pc windows remembers the user/password you used. how can you access that same folder using a different user/password with out A rebooting or B logging out/in of your windows profile.
