I recently got a new laptop and I went to download the official Old School Runescape client for Windows. When I go to open the file, I get a message that says that the file is an executable file and executable files may contain viruses. My question: Is it safe to download?

I like playing OSRS and I've been playing for 3-4 years but I don't want to put my new laptop at risk.

I appreciate any thoughts on this.

If you're downloading it directly from Jagex you'll be fine. However if you're worried about it install your antiviral and antimalware softwares first and scan the file prior to launching it for peace of mind. ~Tranq~
