Calculate the hash of the Monero binary with the command: `certUtil -hashfile monero-gui-win-x64-v0.16.0.2.zip SHA256` (if you downloaded a command-line only version, replace `monero-gui-win-x64-v0.16.0.2.zip` accordingly). Calcula el hash del binario Monero con el comando: `certUtil -hashfile monero-gui-win-x64-v0.11.1.0.zip SHA256` (si descargaste una versión de consola de comandos solamente, cambia `monero-gui-win-x64-v0.11.1.0.zip` de acuerdo a tu binario).

Compare the hash from the terminal with the one in the hash file. They should be the same (spaces can be ignored). Compara el hash de la terminal con el que está en tu archivo hash. Deberían ser el mismo (los espacios pueden ignorarse).

If your hash **DOES** match then you are finished with verification! You can be sure the Monero files you have are authentic. You may extract and install/use the files normally. Si tu hash **SÍ** coincide entonces has terminado con la verificación! Puedes estar seguro de que tus archivos Monero son auténticos. Puedes extraer e instalar/utilizar los archivos normalmente.
If your hash **DOES NOT** match **DO NOT CONTINUE.** Instead delete the Monero binary from the `Downloads` directory and go back to [section 4.1](#41-download-binary). Si tu hash **NO** coincide **NO CONTINÚES.** En su lugar elimina el binario Monero de `Descargas` y regresa a la [sección 4.1](#41-descargar-binario).
