Is there a command or a GUI tool in Windows 7 to get 1) uptime

2) last user logged in time and date

3) machine last rebooted

Thank you

I know that login/logout times can be found under the Security section of Windows Logs in Event Viewer. It's worth looking around on Event Viewer to find other information you require.

Found in: Control Panel (Classic view) > Administrative Tools

or hit start and type "event viewer" into the search.

This may also help.

Surely when you know 1 you can work out 3?

You can find out the uptime from the command line using this command:

net statistics server | find "Statistics since"

Well, I don't know about last user, but uptime/reboot, you can use the following gadget:


Don't worry about the image quality, the little screenshot is really distorted, but i've been using it for years now on Vista, and 7, and it has been working beautifully.

It shows you the time your computer has been up in the format:

w days
x hours
y minutes
z seconds

Try System Up Time Monitor 5.5

This program will display the system started Date & Time , how long the pc is running now etc. You can ask the program to shutdown the pc, restart, hibernate etc when a perticuler time reached.
Note: The program can monitor up to 49days.
Supports Windows 200 / XP/ vista. 

Should work with Windows 7. But haven't tested yet.

Using ‘Net user’ command we can find the last login time of a user. The exact command is given below.

**net user  **username** | findstr /B /C:"Last logon"**

Change username with username of your PC.

Example: To find the last login time of the computer administrator

**C:\> net user administrator | findstr /B /C:"Last logon"
Last logon                   6/30/2010 10:02 AM

and this would be helpfull

net user username

with administrator it shows nothing, but with my username is says "The user name could not be found" –  Tom Stickel Jun 27 '13 at 16:58

Go to command prompt (type cmd into start menu) and enter quser. It shows the dates of all [current] users' logins. administrator will show the time the computer was last booted.

This will still display the correct logon times even if the workstation's screen has been locked some time during the session.

You may then use a net date calculator to figure out how long they (or the computer) has been on.
