Hello, first I would like to thank the company that created the program for providing me with the information. Let's get to the bottom of it.

First you have to install Chocolatey. There is a way with CMD (The CMD method is recommended and the one I used) and another with Powershell, both are valid.

In CMD as administrator execute the following code:

Code:
@"%SystemRoot%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe" -NoProfile -InputFormat None -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Command "iex ((New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadString('https://chocolatey.org/install.ps1'))" && SET "PATH=%PATH%;%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\chocolatey\bin"
In PowerShell:

With PowerShell, there is an additional step. You must ensure Get-ExecutionPolicy is not Restricted. We suggest using Bypass to bypass the policy to get things installed or AllSigned for quite a bit more security.

Run Get-ExecutionPolicy. If it returns Restricted, then run Set-ExecutionPolicy AllSigned or Set-ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Scope Process.
Now run the following command:
Code:
Set-ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Scope Process -Force; iex ((New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadString('https://chocolatey.org/install.ps1'))
Then execute in CMD or Powershell the following command:

Code:
choco install deeparmor
Wait for it to finish and you're done! You already have a next-generation antivirus for free for a year! I hope you can use it or just try it.

Regards and thanks.

I get the error in CMD:
New-Object : Cannot create type. Only core types are supported in this language mode.

This is likely because PowerShell is blocked and can't even be executed, is there no other way to install?

Thank you for this it's much appreciated. But, if you don't mind my asking why are there so many command line commands just to install this product? Thank you again.

Be carefull with this. My first impression was what the hell is this program doing. Zero info about what files it was scanning and almost zero settings. My laptop fans were making noise, so i did a scan with Zemana 2.0 and it deleted a few PUA:W32/Traffic/Analitic files and a root certificate ! All related to Chocalatey.

Chocolatey is Windows equivalent of Linux package manager (apt, pacman, etc). As such, by nature it's operated by using commands to streamline the install process. It's particularly useful and powerful for system administrator to deploy software in large scale. Think about it like Ninite minus the GUI but with way bigger database.

Yeah I have my doubts on this like @fredgo said. You are installing an endpoint client that is connected to some enterprise console that you have no control over. You just gave complete control over your computer to someone you don't know. I wouldn't risk it.
After installation it seems that DeepArmor connects to a cloud hosted by SparkCognition. Nevertheless, as you already mentioned a user doesn´t have control over this cloud nor can he modify any policies. Since DeepArmor is completely managed via cloud I´m just wondering whether this does make sense.
