    Look in your system event log - you'll see events with the source being
    "event log" and the event ID 6006 (shutdown) and 6009 (startup)

    Hi

    A)
    Uptime.exe here should work fine for Windows XP as well:

    http://www.microsoft.com/ntserver/nts/downloads/management/uptime/default.asp


    B)
    Or you can e.g. use PsInfo.exe for this:

    Local computer: Psinfo.exe uptime
    Remote computer: Psinfo.exe uptime \\somecomputer

    PSInfo.exe is in the in the free PsTools suite found at
    http://www.sysinternals.com/


    C)

    Or you can use VBScript/WMI for this:
