Sigcheck a user profile

The following PowerShell code was built for a malware scanning module. It uses the Microsoft tool Sigcheck to scan for .exe files in a users profile, checks the results with VirusTotal and logs them. It utilises a .csv file as a whitelist of trusted Publishers that I created for omission to reduce the number of results. The code implements a Try/Catch protocol to test certain parameters before proceeding, aiding in error logging should any issues occur prior to scanning. The tool can ultimately be incorporated as a module so you can call it straight from a PowerShell console.

function Get-SigcheckUserProfile {
Performs a Sysinternals Sigcheck scan on a user profile.
Get-SigcheckUserProfile uses the Sysinternals tool 'Sigcheck' on
a username to scan their profile and filter out results
from known-Publishers regarded as safe.
Username of the profile to scan.
Path of the 'Valid Sigcheck Publishers.csv' file to filter out known-Signers.
Defaults to current Powershell directory.

Specify this switch to create a text log file of usernames
that could not be queried.
When used with -LogErrors, specifies the file path and name
to which failed usernames will be written. Defaults to
current Powershell directory.
