I'm working on a messaging system project on Win32 platform. I want to store MD5 of the users passwords in a database. I tried to write my own MD5 class but end up with failure miserably. How can I find an MD5 library on the Web to use in my project?

Don't use MD5 for any serious kind of security - see this paper describing a method of producing collisions in ~1 minute on a 1.6 GHz Pentium.

Crypto++ includes an implementation of MD5, as well as implementations of SHA-224, SHA-256, SHA-384, and SHA-512 which are more secure and have not yet been broken.
