This system is previously used by a lady "Mary", now I'm using this computer. It's my office computer.

Today I created a new Stack Overflow account, but now my account details were merged with her details.

How can I create a new account from this computer? I don't want to use her reputation in my name. Please help me.

I would expect that cookies and caches are saved per-user on a machine that has more than one user. You are reusing her profile as well? –  Wivani Oct 4 '11 at 12:53
    
Notes: user's account created: 10 June 2011. First activity (question asked/rep earned): 4 Oct. Merged accounts: none. –  Dori Oct 12 '11 at 23:46

Email team@stackoverflow.com with the account details.

I can see your SO account is Midhun http://stackoverflow.com/users/792459/midhun

Let them know which account "Mary"'s was and they should be able to unmerge these accounts.

Next, Clear all browser cookies and caches and start again

I am not aware of any operating system that requires different users to share the same account. I hate to offend, but it's true: automatic login is not smart. –  WGroleau Dec 22 '13 at 23:32
