Connecting to a share in a network after password change

I have a network of two computers.

ComputerA, running Windows XP 32-bit has a shared folder in read-only
mode called SFiles with a sign-on of CAShare and a password of ZXJK1122.

ComputerB, running Windows Vista 64, in the Network entry of Windows
Explorer shows ComputerA. When I expand ComputerA I can see the SFiles
shared folder undereath and when I try to click on the folder it asks me
for a sign-on and password. I answer with CAShare and ZXJK1122, and it
asks me if I want to save this information and I say yes. Subsequently,
when I click on the SFiles shared folder it gives me read-only access to
the files in the shared folder. This works excellently.

Subsequently, on ComputerA, I decide to change the password for the
sign-on of CAShare from ZXJK1122 to NPPP345T.

Now on ComputerB when I try to click on the SFiles shared folder in
Windows Explorer I get a message of:

"Windows can not access \\ComputerA\SFiles with an error code of
Ox80070005, Acces is denied."

That's fair enough, since I changed the password for the sign-on. So I
want Windows Explorer to ask me for a new password, and I will reply
NPPP345T and now have read-only access again which is fine. But it does
not do this but repeatedly denies me access each time I click on the
shared folder. Surely there must be some way to tell Window Explorer to
get a new password from me for this share. How do I do that ? It seems
impossible that Vista will keep me from accessing shared folders of
another computer on my network simply because it has decided that I can
not change the signon/password to the other computer's shares.
