Is there a log of the number of times a computer (running windows XP or windows 7) reboots and at what time a compute reboots?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I have a custom Windows Event log to pull this information for me.

In Event Viewer, create a custom View with the following details:

By Log: System
Event ID's: 12,13

I also make the period only the last 7days, so that it loads quickly.

This works great for me, it may not be exactly what you are looking for though...

Look in the Event Viewer. It will tell you (System Log) when the computer started (Kernel General Event 12). This is for Windows 7. You can sort the columns and events to see similar times or similar events.
