    My Script :


    $Date = (Get-Date).ToString("yyyMMdd-HHmm")

    $computers = @(Get-Content 'C:\Test\testmchines.txt')
    foreach ($computer in $computers){
        $Obj = New-Object PSCustomObject -Property @{ComputerName=$computer;TestExists=$false;Uninstalled=$false}

        $Test = Get-WMIObject -Class Win32_Product -Filter "Name Like '%Pulse Secure%'" -ComputerName $computer

        if ($Test){
            $Obj.TestExists = $true
            $result = $Test.Uninstall()
            if ($result -eq 0) {
