Checksum the entire PC

    I was wondering, just like there are individual file checksums, like
    MD5, is there a way to checksum the entire PC?

    Why do I want to do the entire PC? Because a single operation of
    doing so is probably easier and faster than doing individual MD5
    checks on hundreds or even thousands of files.

    I'd like to know the state or signature (if you will) of the entire
    box before any development or testing occurs on it.

    Thanks!
