Publisher's Description:

MD5 Checker - MD5 Checker 2.31 - 18th February 2007

Free 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.

The download is 25K (yes 25K) and the resulting program once unzipped is a tiny 100K!!!

It is truly a 'stand-alone' program in as much that is DOES NOT require ANY support software (i.e. NET Framework, or any DLL's).

A Help file (59K) is available for download at:

No install offered, because it simply does not need it...just run md5.exe, and that's it!

Hmmmmm I couldn't get this to load properly the first time and it seemed limited in the way it worked.I had another version of this tool which gave me about 14 different ops and was very useful.
Unfortunately that was a web based Checker and since having my PC rebuilt and losing "My Favs" I can't find the web-site again.
Still,yours is ok I guess :)

Chriscoen 2009-08-14 20:08:10 #

I downloaded and used MD5 Checker to crosscheck another MD5 product (Nero) which was reporting an invalid MD5 checksum. NB This is my first experience with MD5 checking. After discovering that both Nero and your product gave the same result, I deleted your MD5 checker from my system as I do not want the overhead of two equivalent 'MD5-check' products.
I did however find your product easy to install and use, & wish you every success in the future.
Best regards, Chris Coen

Bcampbell 2009-03-26 12:59:13 #

The checker worked great. Our vendor had us download a file that they wanted us to check the MD5 signature. MD5 Checker verified that the signature was correct. We were then able to use the vendors downloaded file.

Thanks for providing a resource

I was researching MD5 for FileMaker Pro, found MD5 Checker, downloaded it a number of resources from other sites and just haven't had time to thoroughly look through all the material yet.

Tim.e.mcguire 2009-03-05 09:48:36 #
Version: 2.31

works great.

I downloaded md5 checker for comparison with other similar tools.
Other tools are a little more involved and maybe have more features such as sha1 verification and hashing entire directory trees. This one does not attempt that. It is simply a handy little free tool to check md5 for a file you just downloaded. I like that the clipboard contents are automatically pasted into the hash box.

There doesn't appear to be an easy way to add this tool to the context menu so that you can right click on a file and get to this program.

I would recommend you provide an md5 hash for this tool! (3003b5beef77ba07548921d398a37633 fyi)

about MD5 Checker

MD5 Checker is good tool , but I think it wood be better if it has the ability to save the md5 sum in a *.md5sum file , cause when the user replies by yes to saving the md5 sum , the program only strats the notepad.

Thank you

This is one of the easier ones I have tried and it works every time. I'm not to savy nor comfortable with doing it the DOS way so this suites me well.

After download I used MD5sum -> very simple and nice tool.
No command line stuff just start, browse and done!

works fine but good to add more features

the tool works great 100% out fof 100% but
it good to have more feature like checking for the SHA AND CRC32 OF THE ISO IMAGE TO MATCH IT CORRECTLY WITH THE ORIGINAL RELEASE

THANK U!!!!!!!

review for MD5 Checker

Very good application, thank you !

Pls add an instruction how the reference value for the MD5 sum is transferred to the right box. I found it out OK, but after some trials.

cTony 2009-01-03 15:17:48 #
Version: 2.31

Small, Light, Ronseal

Simple, easy to use, quick, and tiny; MD5 Checker does exactly that, comes with an option to create sums too, and withought too much effort from its user. However, i would prefer to have an 'OK' button as my main criticism (other than say a batch mode) is with it performing the check on the chosen MD5 sum (which is not clearly labelled as the sum) immediately after you load a file rather than waiting to see if you've made a personal selection for the MD5 sum. Still, it's a small and cohesive application with a user interface that's learned for good in 5 seconds or less, does `exactly what it says on the tin`, and comes as a little .exe rather than pushing its way through your registry and user settings withought permission. If you want to check an MD5 on some downloads, or offer some MD5s for yours, you can use this with ease.

Problem with MD5 Checker

I have downloaded MD5 Checker to test it. Unfortunately it failed to check the MD5 sum of an iso file I had on my computer.
This same file, on the same computer, is correctly checked by other MD5 checking utilities, even the simplest freeware ones.

Good Checker

Used on WIN XP Pro as there is nothing supplied by MS.

R-download 2008-11-06 20:28:55 #
Version: 2.31

Almost useful tool

I liked the approach to the tool.
But, it seemed to grab whatever was on the clipboard as the target MD5 checksum. Ant the calculated value was nearly impossible to read - too little contrast between the text and the red or green background.
When creating a checksum, the error/completion messages were not consistent with the options checked.

Ukstgeorge 2008-11-06 06:40:45 #
Version: 2.31

Very Good and simple to use

I tried various md5 utilities, which either did not work on my 98se desktop or would not install. I needed to check the download on the latest Linux Ubuntu 8.10 distro. After looking up the checksum on the ubuntu website, copying and pasting checksum into MD5 Checker I pointed to the iso I had downloaded, MD5 verified that the download was good prior to burning.
I will carry on using this tool and will look no further.

Rawarren 2008-11-05 07:37:29 #
Version: 2.31

Simple and to the point

Simple and to the point. It checks the selected MD5 against the a file of your choosing. It also will make a CheckSum for a file for you. Quick and to the point,it works.

Great bit of kit, does exactly what it says on the tin and not too slowly. I'd use it again.

MD5 checker review

I have only used MD5 Checker to verify MD5 checksums. And it does exactly what I was after. It is also easy to use. Maybe it is a litle slow but I guess it is related to a large file, ~2,7 GB, and not the fastest PC (it's three years old).

Flaq 2008-10-26 06:00:50 #

Very nice application

This thing is great. It is extremely simple to use, which is what I was looking for. I was not able to get it to allow me to paste in my md5 sum. This is the only glitch I experienced.

It does what I need it to do, and that's the best thing that can be said about any piece of software, as far as I am concerned. Keep up the great work, folks!

MD5 Checker 2.31 performance

Nice piece of software, but it takes too much time to calculate MD5 checksum for a DVD ISO (4 GB app) in a dual core Centrino 2, 4 GB RAM machine.

when checking large file

It will cause the system no response when checking a large file, such as a ISO file in 3GB size.

Author's Response:
Hi James Tan,

3 out of 5 for (Freeware) price!!!! :)

Anyway, I do hope you are in the minority when you say it 'freezes' your system.

I have tried it on a 6GB file with no problems.

Guess it comes down to sooooo many things (speed of CPU, O/S, graphics driver etc. etc.).

Sorry it doesn't work for you, but there really is nothing I can do to 'enhance' the performace of MD5 Checker.

Thanks for you input.

Works Just Fine!

Works as advertised. Proved a couple of downloads were good and caught one that the MD5 sum was bad on. Redownloaded and got it right. Thanks.

E. 2008-03-05 11:48:08 #
Version: 2.31

All in all, a very good tool to use

Fairly straight forward. Pasting entries was not as flexible as I initially expected; CTRL+V should be added to the functionality. A HELP button would be beneficial. Otherwise, it does what I want it to do. Nice job.

I was working specifically with verifying checksums. It did the job very well. The "Windows" front end could be a little more flexible.

Coffeephile 2008-01-27 13:18:46 #

Color Scheme

The colors make it difficult to read the md5sum results in the bottom line.

MSplatter 2008-01-16 09:43:49 #

KISS: keep it simple stewpid,
Program excels at keeping it easy and straightforward, excellent light program that does the checksum in as few clicks as possible. Easy to recommend.

Author's Response:
First off...

Thanks again Guys for taking the time and trouble to comment....

I'm sure some of you have good points to make, but, here is my take on current comments...

User comment:

The colours make it difficult to read the md5sum results in the bottom line

My response:

Perfectly fair comment, but, on the other hand, if the bar turns green, the MD5 is good so what could you possibly do with the information in the green bar (readable or not - might even exclude this information in any future version)?

User comment:

A HELP button would be beneficial....

My response:

To keep it tight, I avoided an in-built Help system however, you can download Help here:

User comment:

CTRL+V should be added to the functionality.

My response:

What's the point?

If you have copied (Ctrl C) in an MD5 code, the 'Paste' button will bring it in...otherwise, you would have to click in the code box to highlight it, then hit Ctrl V thereby creating extra unnecessary moves (clicks)!!!

Thanks for your support.

Does exactly what it is meant to do

Allows me to be sure a download was correctly by checking the MD5 checksum.

Allows me to let others do the same by including a checksum when I transfer large files.

Accidental download

Although I downloaded this, I was actually looking for a SHA1 checker, found it easy to use for checking MD5 although these days SHA1 is becoming more popular

orbica 2007-10-11 02:53:54 #

Simple and effective

Another Satisfied Us 2007-08-24 11:25:21 #

down to earth tool

Only recommendation would be a "help" button to indicate exactly what the two radio buttons do. A status bar would be helpful too expecially when an md5sum is being generated for a large file.
Other than that, excellent tool that provided just what I needed!

Author's Response:
Just for the record, v2.31 does include a progress bar and a Help file (56K) can be downloaded at:

MD5 Checker

It's lite and it works great.
I don't download many apps.
With security issues on the rise I thought it time to get something to verify my downloads. This checker fit the bill, or should I say didn't. There was NO bill, it's Free.

Author's Response:
Many thanks EdQ (and to all of you that have taken the time and trouble to comment on MD5 Checker).

If you have any TWAIN compliant Hardware (Scanner etc.), you might want to give our brand new Freeware software 'FreeKapture' a spin?

As you probably realise, MD5 Checker is currently at v2.31 and is now a 25K zip download (100K full Windows standalone program!!).

Here is our current 'ReadMe' for MD5 Checker...

MD5 Checker 2.31 - 18th February 2007.

Free 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.

The download is 25K (yes 25K) and the resulting program once unzipped is a tiny 100K!!!

It is truly a 'stand-alone' program in as much that is DOES NOT require ANY support software (i.e. NET Framework, or any DLL's).

No install offered, because it simply does not need it...just run md5.exe, and that's it!

Good little tool

Serves the purpose to what it claims. I was able to confirm and feel satisfied that the download was what it was. It builds the confidence level to be able to use it in production systems.

HVM 2006-12-06 11:06:08 #

Get it.

Very good. It's free and does exactly what it says it does, and it does it effectively and quickly and well. Its easy to use too.

Author's Response:
Many thanks for taking the time and trouble to comment on our Freeware MD5 Checker.

We know it lacks some features, and it isn't 'eye candy', but we hope you find it useful :)

For those of you that may not see the point, MD5 Checker allows you to verify ANY file with a given MD5 checksum (hash).

In other words, you can confirm that (say) a backup file is identical to the original by running MD5 Checker and comparing the results.

You can also create your own MD5 checksums.
