I am new to Powershell - and I am trying to create a script that will check to see if a registry key exists, if it does - change the value, if it does not exist - then create it and set the value. What I have is below - and it does not work (IWhereas I am new,  am not surprised)
$key = Test-Path HKCU:\Software\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters
If $key=False
New-Item –path HKCU:\Software\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters –name AutoShareServer
New-Itemproperty -path " HKCU:\Software\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters\AutoShareServer  -value  0
