Hey guys, and thanks for the help in advance! Rather than hijack another's thread I will wreak my havoc here.
From what I just read (Thanks to Didier Stevens) I see that I have an older version of PowerShell, and that this Script won't work. Here is my outcome. I will go try to find the info on Updating Powershell, and then try the script again. Any advice on that would be nice, if there is anything to avoid etc. Hopefully this will also help others with this issue.

I am a little confused about what this Script does? Is it that not all CPU's are vulnerable? My CPU does not have a current firmware update so it may be vulnerable at this time (though not to worried about it ATM) I have time to work on it now, so I'll try to move forward. I'm hoping Dell and Intel will get the firmware update if needed on my cpu and will be watching for it.
