Hashes, how to use them.

Hello friends.
...could someone help me for the below :
Often when we download a large file, drivers or an .iso etc they give the Hashes
MD5:, SHA-1 for to check the integrity of the file after (if I understood it well)
My problem is that I cannot find them and I don't know where to look for them,
..There are not in properties or in help menu.
Can you help me telling me where I have to search, how to use them?
Thank you

You need a program to generate the MD5/SHA-1 hash for you. I use md5sums for this but I'm sure there are many others that are easier to use.

HashCheck Shell Extension

I have a shell extension called "HashCheck Shell Extension".
It adds a tab called "Checksums" to the "Properties" window.

FreeCommander (a file manager) also has a MD5 creator and verifier built-in.

The hashes - your still at it
Come on people, this is nonsense now. If you continue to believe that two different files are able to have the same hashes, you have to be kidding yourself.
