|RULES, DOWNLOAD ISSUES and LIABILITY EXCLUSION|
|When we speak of
Shareware here for our Software programs, we mean the following:
|Yes there likely
will be download issues. Over time both internet browsers and virus
checkers on our computers have become more wary and concerned about
viruses and adware. The problem that they have, it seems to me,
though, is that they have little way of telling which is safe. And
therefore it seems that browsers and some virus checkers will try
and stop the small software companies from downloading, but instead
allow larger names to be unaffected. This does not actually bring
safety since we are well aware that some large well known names
include adware or extra programs that you may not wish into the
downloads. As we say here, we allow only the program into the
download and its needed files.
And so, some browsers may warn you about not downloading the software. However, some of those browsers may have a place on the download screen that allows you to bypass that warning. I noted that at least on one browser, that over ride function was in the lower left. Another person told me that they had to shut off their virus checker to download the software. It is of course up to you, the user, to decide whom you wish to trust. We can only do the best we can and give you the best information that we know how. The very best to you regardless of what you choose to do.
Also note that some of our newer software programs will load into the computer "User" area instead of the program areas. That is a choice from the Microsoft Loader for our software that we seem to have no choice on. And often, the program cannot be moved. Some of our programs that load into the user area however, might indicate on the form title where they are located or have a help function that give the location where the software program was loaded. Our Filemanager 2b program on the left file screen drop down box we believe also may have that location where the program is loaded as a quick access file goto possibility.
As for icons, oddly our older programs such as Musicord may not put an icon on the desktop, but you can locate it within the file directories perhaps under rpsoft2000 or rpsoft_2000 or the like. Our newer software most often includes an icon for startup that can also be right clicked and added to the computer taskbar.
All Liability associated with these programs must be borne by the
user in total with no liability offered by us, the website, company,
the software writer and or the distrbutor. If you object to this,
please do not download. We are not a rich company. We are a small
company asking for very little money for a lot of effort on our parts.
That makes this website as much or more of a hobby than a business.
We write Software programs that we want ourselves. And then we
decide to share... but then only share, shareware, to nice people.
However, what we do state is that these software programs are all written in a Microsoft Language and we exclusively use Microsoft loaders as is. We add no viruses or adware or anything other than the program and its needed files into the download package. This is one of the reasons that we control distribution of our software. We are concerned about safety.
However, please note that any software program that can modify or delete files might bring damage to computer files if not used properly and carefully. This is especially true of our File Manager2b Software which direcly allows file changes. It is totally up to the user, a responsibility that must be accepted by the user, to be careful, and also to save files that are important to an important backup separate backup system, and also to think before deleting items. And please note that items deleted by our File Manager do not go to the recycle bin, but in fact are deleted.
On the plus side of this, some of us who are careful prefer in some cases to not use the recycle bin if we are certain of what we are doing, since the recycle bin then makes file delete a two step work process. It is always best to backup important data to another drive, or cloud, or elsewhere, before any modification.
In addition, the program File Manager2b contains backup help routines that I myself frequently use to save items and love those features. So if used correctly, File Manager and the other programs can be safe and a great help, as I have found them to be. But repsonsibility to watch what we are doing does rest solely with the user.
