How To Check the Date Windows was Installed on a PC

There is a simple command that tells you what the “Original Install Date of Windows” was, on your PC. (Command works on Windows XP, Vista, 7 & 8 )

Open the Command Prompt and insert:

systeminfo | find "Original Install Date"

originalinstalldate

Sure, there are PowerShell commands too:

([WMI]”).ConvertToDateTime((Get-WmiObject Win32_OperatingSystem).InstallDate)

or

[timezone]::CurrentTimeZone.ToLocalTime(([datetime]’1/1/1970′).AddSeconds($(get-itemproperty ‘HKLM:\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion’).InstallDate))

originalinstalldate2

    You can also check the install date by opening the Start Menu and type cmd in the run box, At the command prompt, type systeminfo.exe

    You will need to scroll back up in the console window to find the section at the top that lists operating system stats.
