I have been playing around with the SystemInfo command in windows, and I wanted a concise way to see what the uptime of my system was.
It is actually very simple. Get a command line, and type:

This is a very simple way to see if that server, or workstation was really rebooted.
Note: It seems that I have been caught using Windows XP again. Can’t help it…so much faster than my Vista box. The above command will not work for 2008, or Vista. This is because Microsoft has changed the output of SystemInfo. To get very similar info for those two operating systems you can use: “systeminfo | find “System Boot Time”
Update #2: On Windows 2003 it is different too: “systeminfo | find “System Up Time”
