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");
