extracting rar gives crc error/wrong password

I have downloaded the file multiple times and then entered the password correctly several times. It still gives me the error, why? The password works on my other computer…

Run a checksum on the two files and see if they match (look for md5sum for example)

What program are you using? Its possible the password could be posted incorrectly too.

Without knowing (or wanting to know) what type of file you're dealing with or it's origin, I'll say this:
Password protected archive files commonly contain viruses and other malicious software.

It's entirely possibly you're antivirus is trying to automatically quarantine the file after you enter the password or that you already have malware on your computer. A scan with MalwareBytes wouldn't hurt. For opening the file, comparing the checksum is a good idea, you might try 7-zip instead of what ever program you've been using.

try checking if the capslock on your keyboard is turned on?
