Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This tiny freeware utility checks the validity of downloaded files by quickly comparing the files to previously generated checksums, though it can't check complete folders. With MD5 Checker's ultrasimple interface, you can easily browse for files to validate, or generate MD5 checksums. Using the program is merely a matter of pointing the program to the file of your download. The program rapidly computes the checksum of a file and quickly compares that value to the expected checksum. The program clearly indicates checksum values as matched or mismatched. However, MD5 Checker works only with files and can't check a folder of files with a single click. Even so, software developers who download from services that include checksum files will want this freeware application in their toolboxes.
