Many large or important programs provide a MD5 or SHA-1 hash along with their installation file. To verify the hash on Windows, you need the File Checksum Integrity Verifier (FCIV) program. This can be downloaded here.
The FCIV installer extracts
fciv.exe. Generating hash with FCIV is simple:
REM Generate MD5 hash fciv foobar.iso REM Generate SHA-1 hash fciv -sha1 foobar.iso
Ensure that the hash generated by FCIV matches the hash string provided online before you install the files.
