$RQ = Get-Content C:\Testing\PS\Reg.txt
foreach($RD in $RQ)
{
if(!(Test-Path -Path $rd))
{
Write-Host "RegValue Not Exists!"
}
else
{
Write-Host "RegValue Exists!"
}
}
}
get

Try this..

function get ($file) {
Get-Content $file | % {
$RD = $_
$Name = ($RD -split "\\")[-1]
$Key = $RD -replace "\\$Name$"
	Try{
	$Value = Get-ItemProperty -Path $Key -Name $Name -EA STOP | Select-Object -ExpandProperty $Name
	$Value | Select @{N="Key";E={$RD}},@{N="RegValue";E={$_}}
	}
	Catch{
	"" | Select @{N="Key";E={$RD}},@{N="RegValue";E={"Not Exists!"}}
	}
 }
}
get C:\Testing\PS\Reg.txt | FT -AutoSize
