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.

MD5 Checker 2.31 - 18th February 2007. Utility to verify downloads with an MD5 checksum from the makers of MidWavi Pro (it's only 100K and this is a true Windows program). Tiny (100K unzipped) full Windows program to verify (and create) MD5 checksums (that is, where an MD5 code is given for a download file, using this software, if the codes match, the download is good). You can also create your own MD5 checksum if required.
