Checksums Keeps Changing


Hi,
Guys i have this really weird problem,I'm a windows user and i'm shiftin to linux,now i've downloaded suse 10 disc one.I checked the md5 hash and it was different from the official one.So i checked again and this time it gave a different checksum.Now to really test it i checked it 10 times and all the times it gave different checksums. Then i tested on other Bid files <400 MB and it keeps giving different checsums.I've used MD5Deep,Winhex 12,HashCalc and all give different.But these programs work for small files.So what shoul i do?
Regards

Maybe you should re-download md5sum! Just a guess...

I rely upon gpg as my main assurance that a file has been downloaded without corruption.

Either you have a buggy checksum program or I'd look at possibly bad memory on the system.
