Need to know the checksum of a file
Posted on 2011-02-25
i Need to know the checksum of a files
I know there are tools, checksum tools to find out the MD5 checksum
My problem is I have a lot of programs which the size, and name are identical but some of them are malware,
and I did a mess, now I do not know which are the good and bad files
Some of them are very old programs but that works very well under Windows XP
Such as said they are old programs and the sites where I recall I downloaded the files the domain has expired.
With other files I can not find the checksums at their site, or in other download website like filehippo.com
I usually use GetRight as download manager in order to remember when, where I downloaded a file, this time I did not use it with this files
What can I do?
Can I upload the files at VirusTotal.com, then copy the MD5 checksum from this site and use a checksum tool?
I am asking for another advice, OR ALTERNATIVE
VT.com is an idea I had but I would to have another option, but if is the only option I have this is ok, I just want to know if this way is reliable
Finally, can you please suggest me a good free and nice checksum tool?
P.S.: I am sorry to ask 2 questions I know I can only ask 1 question
Thank you very much in advance
