Chocolatey is a great way to get the fundamentals into a new install of Windows. First we install it:

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

And then we get everything we want in:

choco install -y GoogleChrome Firefox jre8 adobereader flashplayerplugin flashplayeractivex adobeair adobereader-update flashplayerppapi adobeshockwaveplayer
