    "Works great"

    September 7, 2013  |   By bhorn2001

    Version: MD5 Checker 2.31

    Pros

    If you use the Direct download link you get just the software. This little program works great. Download, unzip and execute. Just that simple. Don't pay attention to the negative reviews. Use the Direct download link NOT the CNET link.

    Cons

    NONE if you use the Direct download link.
    Wish they had a Mac version that was this simple.

    Summary

    Love this program and have it installed on all my Windows computers.

    "Didn't work for me, only installed malware"

    June 1, 2013  |   By Post169

    Version: MD5 Checker 2.31

    Pros

    Easily found; the first result when I searched for "MD5 checker"

    Cons

    That Pro means nothing, as when I browsed for the ZIP file I wanted to check, it didn't see it.
    Now that I think of it, the installer was probably the reason Chrome crashed, accompanied by three problems: a malware extension "We-Care Reminder" which does not allow the user do disable or remove it was added to Chrome, as well as a less malicious extension which changed the default search engine. The third problem was that when Chrome crashed, I lost the page that was showing the MD5 code, so when I reloaded it, I don't know if it was the same one.

    Summary

    Stay away from this!
    CNET, PLEASE remove this malware spreader!

    "Bloatware in the downloader"

    November 2, 2012  |   By MissLisa62tx

    Version: MD5 Checker 2.31

    Pros

    Seems like a good program after uninstalling the bloatware. Hope I found it all!!!

    Cons

    Bloatware in the installer. Check your Browser Add-ins if you use it even if you tell it not to install anything.

    Summary



    Updated on Nov 2, 2012

    I expected better from CNET. My opinion of them just took a nosedive.

    "a better program"

    October 13, 2012  |   By WilliamLeng

    Version: MD5 Checker 2.31

    Pros

    It works most of the time.

    Cons

    It lacks many features I want.

    Summary

    I also use HashCopy and found it is much better. HashCopy can copy and verify a folder recursively. It can handle hundreds of thousands files in one operation. I used to copy a folder that contains about 200,000 files with a total size of over 1 terabytes. It took 16 hours to finish. HashCopy can be downloaded from www.jdxsoftware.org.

    "Crashes on run"

    May 30, 2012  |   By DiddlerDave

    Version: MD5 Checker 2.31

    Pros

    It is free! It also works on occasion.

    Cons

    The program crashes and freezes

    Summary

    I'm running XP and wanted to check a few downloads for authenticity. I downloaded this, and ran it, and followed the directions. They should tell you to not run the MD5 checker against the app unless you make a copy of it, run the copy, and check the md5.exe... Otherwise, the program crashes because the file is open.

    However, the author says it can check files over 2GB. I had no luck. I've got a 4.5GB file, and about a third of the way through checking it the progress bar stopped. 5 minutes later I ended the task.

    "Aborted D/l & Install Because of CNET Downloader"

    March 5, 2012  |   By Ardwych

    Version: MD5 Checker 2.31

    Pros

    Never really found out.

    Cons

    I gave up on my attempt to install the MD5 checker because the only download I could find was Cnet's own Download Manager. That's the last thing I want - ANOTHER HELPFUL DOWNLOADER!

    Summary

    So I gave up downloading/installing; I may never visit Cnet again.
    In fact, I doubt that I will.
