Windows 7: "save the changes” message after removing the protection from workbook

"save the changes” message after removing the protection from workbook

Some time ago I protected the Excel 2010 file from the path File > Protect workbook > Encrypt with password and gave it a password. Now that I removed that password via below method:

Open the workbook and use Save As
In the lower right of the file window will be "Tools"
Choose "General Options"
Clear the password.
Save over your old file.

the file is openable without wanting a password. But the problem is when I open it and close it immediately, even without moving the active cell, the message "Do you want to save the changes you made to 'test.lsx'?" appears. While there hasn't occurred any changes to that file so why I face this message any time I want to close the file?
Hasn't the file been corrupted?

I've seen that happen because there are changes to the properties of the file that can't be seen, example when opening .doc files in Word 2007 or 2010 then closing saving the .doc format.
