Context menu MD5 checker

If you download lots of files you'll find some will come with an MD5 checksum - basically telling you if the file you've downloaded matches the one they think they've sent, avoiding any glitches when downloading.

I generally lose my MD5 checkers, so Alex has told me about this handy one that sits in the context menu of Windows Explorer, so all I have to do is right-click on the file and choose 'MD5' for the checksum of the file. Very handy.
