Open a terminal (`cmd.exe`).

Change to the `Downloads` directory with the command: `cd Downloads`.
![binary cmd cd](/img/resources/user-guides/en/verify_binary_windows_beginner/verify-win_binary-cmd-cd.png)
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).
![binary cmd certutil](/img/resources/user-guides/en/verify_binary_windows_beginner/verify-win_binary-cmd-certutil.png)
Compare the hash from the terminal with the one in the hash file. They should be the same (spaces can be ignored).

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.
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).

To protect the integrity of the binaries the Monero team provides a cryptographically signed list of all the [SHA256](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SHA-2) hashes. If your downloaded binary has been tampered with it will be produce a [different hash](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_verification) than the one in the file. Para proteger a integridade dos binários, a equipe Monero fornece uma lista assinada criptograficamente contendo todos os hashes [SHA256](https://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/SHA-2) dos binários. Se o binário que você baixou foi adulterado, ele irá produzir um [hash diferente](https://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_hashing) do que o hash esperado para o arquivo.
