Is it possible to tell if the system locale on a server has been changed in the last couple of days ?

Since Tuesday, things have been going wrong with some processes that use files FTP’d from that server, and there is just the hint at the moment that it may be as a result of a “£” symbol being corrupted somehow.

The change could be due to a patch update.  The server uses windows operating system.

If you are running a .NET application, you might be able to get that information from System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture.

Event Id 1 from Kernal-General should have been generated indicating a change of time zone(even if the actual time doesn't change, just the zone)
