A Way To A Tell WHEN XP Was Installed?
Someone at work installed XP over 98 w/o permission and messed some network things up. Is there any way at all I can view the actual time and date this was done?

Hrmm... Check to see when the boot.ini was last modified?

Go into system restore and look for the first date on the restore calendar. That will be the date and time XP was installed.

Thank you both. Before I posted this, I did the System Restore thing and got a time. I just wanted to make sure that was right and try to find out if there was a better way. Thanks again.

Another simple way to get info on your OS is to open the command prompt and
type "systeminfo", without the quotes. This returns quite a bit of information in one fell swoop,
well layed out. Another one of those nifty features of the command prompt.

Yep, the world is not perfect. I failed to mention that the command "systeminfo" is one of the new features not found in MS-DOS. My apologies, but it happened to be relevant for DISLEX, since it was XP that was installed over Win '98.
