Limited time only – free screensaver for Mac OS X 10.8 and up
Content includes new work chosen from the past year. Easy to install and uninstall.
Please note: This screensaver is completely safe! My website is protected from all incursions from viruses, malware, etc. by the highly rated WP Anti-Virus Site Protection plugin. However, you will more than likely see a warning when you double click on the installer.
Why the warning when I click on the installer? you ask. Because as an individual and not a legal organization (such as an LLC Non-Profit or Incorporation) I cannot obtain a digital certificate which would “sign” the screensaver.
When you, as a customer or end-user, try to install software that is not signed with a verified digital signature, your operating system becomes suspicious.
With all the malware, trojans and viruses out there it is understandable. You should never install strange, unknown or hinkey stuff on your computer.
Having said that, I am a real person who is trustworthy and honest and my presence as a landscape photographer living in Sonoma County is verifiable.
I have good protections on both my home computers as well as my Website.
So here’s how to politely skirt around any warnings and safely install this screensaver.
You will probably be presented with a warning in a dialog box or popup.
Mac OS X unsigned warning dialog or
Windows’ Internet Explorer unsigned warning or
Windows’ Edge unsigned warning
These warnings are common to many software packages, and most of you already are familiar with the steps to bypass the warnings and open the installer.
To bypass unsigned warnings on Mac OS X:
To bypass Mac (GateKeeper) warning, one can, instead of clicking on the installer icon to open it, simply right-click on the installer icon and choose “open”, or hold down the control key while clicking the icon and choose “open”.
There will then be a new window with the “open” button enabled; click on it and you are good to go.
To bypass unsigned warnings on Windows:
To bypass Authenticode checks, one can choose the “I Undertand the risk…” options and then choose “Run” from the second set of options.
With these two simple techniques, most of the problems of code-signing can be avoided.
