GPResult Formatting

I am stuck on an issue. I have a script where it prompts for a computer name, looks at the current logged on user, and runs a gpresult.

My problem is when no user is logged in, it will try to do a gpresult for @{Username=} instead of only showing the computer results.

Can someone point me in the right direction?

$computer= Read-Host "What is the computer name?"
$User= Get-WmiObject Win32_Computersystem -ComputerName $computer | Select-Object Username

set-location "P:\Script Explorer\Scripts\Group Policy Results\"


if ($User -eq @{Username=}) {
gpresult.exe /scope COMPUTER /s $Computer /h Report.htm /f}

elseif {
gpresult.exe /s $Computer /user GCBE\$user /h Report.htm /f}

start report.htm

Thank you for the help!

I get this "Missing statement after '=' in hash literal." on line 7. I had this problem originally. When I quoted  @{Username=}, it didn't seem to work either. It would remove the error but the condition didn't evaluate correctly.

If I run "Get-WmiObject Win32_Computersystem -ComputerName $computer | Select-Object Username" on a computer without someone logged in, the user returned is @{Username=}

My final script is:

set-location "P:\Script Explorer\Scripts\Group Policy Results\"

$computer= Read-Host "What is the computer name?"
$User= Get-WmiObject Win32_Computersystem -ComputerName $computer | Select-Object Username
$Username=$User.Username

if ($Username -eq $null) {
Get-WmiObject Win32_NetworkLoginProfile -ComputerName $computer | Select-Object Caption
$InputUser=Read-Host "What user would you like to use?"
}


if ($Username -eq $null) {
gpresult.exe /s $Computer /user $InputUser /h Report.htm /f
}

else {
gpresult.exe /s "$Computer" /user "$Username" /h Report.htm /f
}

start report.htm
