Allowing PowerShell scripts to execute

PowerShell Scripts allow you to automate common tasks within Windows, Microsoft applications, and of course Office 365. You can often download handy scripts written by other people off the internet for use on your own computer.

Unfortunately, these scripts have the potential to be harmful, so Microsoft has protected you from this by disabling PowerShell scripts by default on Windows 7. Also, you really need to make sure that you only download or use PowerShell scripts from a trusted source!

If you try and run a PowerShell script, you’ll get a helpful error message, but with this step-by-step guide, we will show you how to fix it.
