Something that Linux does automatically, Windows does not and I believe it would be in my best interest to check the hash totals on a Linux Live CD before I use it because I have to disable, I think, my secure boot in order to boot from a disk. The program I am looking at is Hash Tab talked about here

I am doing this on a Windows 8.1 computer. Any and all suggestions greatly appreciated!

 

And please in simple terms...I am only a Baby Geek...
