choco upgrade adiirc -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"

Virus Disclaimer

Antivirus flags AdiIRC as having a virus or trojan.

AdiIRC seems to generate a lot of false positives in some antivirus programs, if possible, please submit the file to your antivirus vendor for false positive analyzes, so the vendor can improve detection, and/or white-list AdiIRC.exe.

If you are unsure, the false positives seems to be resolved after a few weeks, you can try update again then. Also be free to scan AdiIRC executable on VirusTotal, there are over 50 virus scanners, usually a tiny amount of engines are flagging it, a strong indication it is a false-positive.

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.
