Is it safe to download RTG software?

Yes, it is safe!

RTG software contains no viruses, spyware, or adware. But you don't have to take our word for it. Check for yourself.

If you follow our directions, you will download our installation file onto your Windows Desktop.

Depending on how your antivirus software is set up, it might look for viruses as you download the installation file. Just to be safe, once the file is on your Desktop, right-click on the file and choose the option that scans for viruses. (The exact wording of that option varies, depending on your antivirus software.)

Scanning the file using your own antivirus software is the only reliable guarantee that a file won't harm your computer.

Suppose your antivirus software does report a virus, spyware, or adware in our installation file. (This is very rare, but it has happened.) First, be sure that your software is up-to-date. If the problem persists, please send a message to RTG. Tell us exactly what antivirus software you used and what it reported. We will check our server to be sure the file hasn't changed. (That, however, has never happened.)

Most likely it is a false positive, meaning that the antivirus software is wrong. Read more about false positives.


Digital signature

The digital signature on the RTG Bills and RTG Timer installation file, or the RTG Conflicts installation file, guarantees that the file came from RTG. But a digital signature does not guarantee that a file is safe.

What you really need to know is not where the file came from, but whether it can harm your computer. The digital signature does not tell you that. (It does provide revenue to the companies that sell digital certificates, which are needed to create the digital signature.)

Scanning the file with your antivirus software will tell you whether the file is safe or not.
