About Powershell Scripts

Powershell provides highly scalable management utilities for managing bulk data and code deployment in single and simultaneous multiple server sessions.

For security reasons, scripts are often “remote signed” which means that unless the author is “trusted”, you can review scripts in notepad, but the scripts cannot be executed. This is a security feature to prevent unwanted code being accidentally executed on machines. One way to make a script usable is to use the <unblock-file -verbose> command in Powershell 3.0 and higher to unlock scripts. Be sure to check code before adopting.
