How to use Windows PowerShell to get status information about the Trusted Platform Module (TPM).

Here's a tip from my colleague Ed Wilson (the Microsoft Scripting Guy) about how to use Windows PowerShell to get status information about the Trusted Platform Module (TPM).

Question: You want to find out if Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is present, ready and enabled. How can you do this with a single command using Windows PowerShell?
