I can't duplicate your result:

(Debug) In[13]:= IntegerString[FileHash[StringToStream["Hello, World!"], "CRC32"], 16, 8]
IntegerString[Hash["Hello, World!", "CRC32"], 16, 8]
"Hello, World!" // StringToStream // FileHash[#, "CRC32"] & //
IntegerString[#, 16, 8] &
"Hello, World!" // Hash[#, "CRC32"] & // IntegerString[#, 16, 8] &
(Debug) Out[13]= "ec4ac3d0"
(Debug) Out[14]= "ec4ac3d0"
(Debug) Out[15]= "ec4ac3d0"
(Debug) Out[16]= "ec4ac3d0"

Maybe something about In[614] in your notebook?
