    Trustable Checksum Programs?


    The first two Hash Calculators I tried to download were both flagged by Avast, what are a couple that are known to be trustworthy?

    Thanks!

    Not sure about AVAST, but Nirsoft HashMyFiles is signed, runs as a portable app and I've never had Defender flag it. There are both 32-bit and 64 bit versions:

    I use the Metro version of Hash Express, available free at Microsoft Store.

    I've used this one for awhile and have had no problems, all the downloaded .iso files I've checked and used to burn discs have worked correctly:
