For the authenticity check you can download Gpg4win,
Can you explain what I then do with that program? Which files do I need to already have somewhere, etc? I want to make sure I'm running it correctly. First time I tried something I just got the same string I already got while checking integrity so I'm not sure that's what I was supposed to do. I'm checking the authenticity and that's a different file correct?
I'm not actually too familiar with it, I think you just have to click on the .gpg file. But it also installs the Windows version of GnuPG, i.e. gpg, so you can also just use the commands given in the official instructions.
