I have systems here that are using Windows XP SP3 and I am wondering if there is a way to see how old they are. Meaning to find the date that Windows was installed on the computer.

Is it possible, do you know where to locate this information?

Start > Run > cmd.exe > systeminfo

It will analyze your system and you can see the "original install date" in the generated list.
