Periodically I get an exe which I must execute, type in the corresponding password, and then I can retrieve the files I need.

However, ONCE I happened to type in an incorrect password (three times in a row). Ever since, even though I type in the correct password, I cannot open the .exe (message: password invalid, try one more time...)

If I try to open the same file in another computer, I can. How can I fix this?

Print screen of the software

@HackToHell I added a print screen of the window which asks for the password. Don´t know what software it is... How can i find out? –  Soph Mar 22 '12 at 14:16
Can you right click the file and see in the properties dialog. –  HackToHell Mar 22 '12 at 14:28
