HashCheck Shell Extension 2.1.11
An extension that makes it easy for you to calculate and verify file hashes/checksums by right-clicking a file and selecting the dedicated function from the context menu
Once installed, the application adds a new tab to the Properties window of any file (when you right-click an item, one of the entries within the context menu is called Properties). By accessing this tab, you can explore various types of checksum generated for the current file, namely CRC-32, MD5, MD4 and SHA-1.
Additionally, HashCheck Shell Extension adds a new entry to the context menu of Windows Explorer so you can also use its functions by simply right-clicking a file and creating a checksum file.
Double-clicking a generated checksum file will result in the automatic comparison between the hash values of the existing document and the one included in checksum the - if the values are different, it means the document has been tampered with. If they match, then its integrity has not been modified in any way since the last time you calculated its hash.
All in all, HashCheck Shell Extension can help you ensure your files have not been modified before accessing them. However, it cannot prevent other users from editing your files, so you might also need to look for an encryption application for protecting the contents of all your confidential files - after all, it is your responsibility to make sure your private files remain private.
