Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)

The most popular antivirus software in the world.
avast! Free Antivirus often outperforms our competitors paid-for products and is the minimum protection anyone should have against viruses and spyware.
======= Notes =======
Not Silent version, if not installs Google Chrome.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
