Uptime details for 2008, replacement for uptime /S

With 2008 the uptime /S command no longer works if there is a 6008 event in the log.

Other than clearing the event log is there a way to fix this problem?

If not is there a comparable tool that will show the same info and details as uptime /S that will work on 2008 and 2012?

A quick time to determine how long any windows system has been running is to view the details of it's network connection.
