md5sum fciv for windows

Windows used to come with fciv.exe which is a File Checksum Integrity Verifier utility. More information is over at the Wikipedia entry md5sum.

The file itself is available from Microsoft Support. Usage is on the same page as the download.

In short it gives the user the opportunity to confirm that the file you are downloading is legit and has not been tampered with.
