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.

Thanks for the suggestions. Getting the uptime itself works but what I am trying to do is get more details

Here is an example of what type of output I am looking for, more details up the up and down events, reboots, etc.
