    "Crashes on run"

    May 30, 2012  |   By DiddlerDave


    It is free! It also works on occasion.


    The program crashes and freezes


    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.
