Ended up being a simple solution. Make sure the gpg sig.asc file and litecoin-qt application file are in the same folder.

Thanks for this guide, worked perfectly.

I have recently downloaded the latest bitcoin wallet from bitcoin.org, but I'm not sure how to gpg verify it.
Is there another step by step guide for bitcoin.org download

I've had success every step of the way, but I can not "Decrypt/Verify" Litecoin.exe. I've downloaded the GPG signature as well as bootstrap.dat.
What must I do now?
Help is very much appreciated.

A couple of quick thoughts for anyone having problems:

For any signed executable you should download the corresponding .asc file for that exectuable and use it. I put the .asc in the same directory of anything I'm verifying.

When you download the new client, download the .asc file with it.

I'm going to update the instructions after I work through any information that may be outdated.

This insures that the client you have has not been tampered with in any way, thus insuring that someone cannot steal your coins.

Very good guide. Thanks. 
You can use to check Electrum LTC also... https://electrum-ltc.org/
And GPG signatures are also very usefull to crypt and authentify datas and emails. You can integrate Enigmail extension with client emails Thunderbird or Seamonkey or there are GPG plugins/extensions for webmails with Firefox or Chrome (mailvelope...).
