I need to check a DateTime variable and evaluate whether it is more than a day older then the current datetime.

Any ideas on how to accomplish this.

Simply substract the two DateTimes and evaluate if the resulting TimeSpna is greater than one day.
DateTime dateTimeToCheck = new DateTime(2009, 7, 2,7,0,0);
TimeSpan difference = DateTime.Now - dateTimeToCheck;
bool moreThanOneDay = difference > TimeSpan.FromDays(1);
MessageBox.Show(moreThanOneDay ? "true": "false");
