  1. 1) Powershell method
    For some reason, this doesn’t work on my Win 7 SP1 (x64), Powershell v1.0 (2009), with Server service running. At the Powershell command-line, executing (get-date) - (gcim
    Win32_OperatingSystem).LastBootUpTime
    gives the following error. Any solution ?


    The term 'gcim' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.
    At line:1 char:19
    + (get-date) - (gcim <<<< Win32_OperatingSystem).LastBootUpTime
    + CategoryInfo : ObjectNotFound: (gcim:String) [], CommandNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException

    2) For CMD > net stats srv
    Not always a reliable indicator of system uptime. If the Server service is not running or disabled before net stats srv is executed at CMD, the 1st line “Statistics since […]” in the output merely displays the date-time that the Server service itself was started, & not when the system was booted.

    3) For CMD > systeminfo
    I don’t get any “System Up Time” between “Original Install Date” & “System Manufacturer”, unlike TWC’s screenshot here. Instead, it shows “System Boot Time” [date-time], although I can use this info to perform some mental calculations.
