Windows Start-up Date

[ This Blog Was Moved To : ]

Recently I Needed to know when was the Windows Server Machine restarted and Why ?

So, I executed the command in CMD

net statistics server

  • The Start up time is : Statistics since 8/16/2009 5:40 AM
  • Then From Event Viewer I sorted System Logs by Source
  • Searched for User32 and matched Date with the output of `net statistics server` to know the cause of system restart.
  • With a double click on the record, I found something like that
The process winlogon.exe has initiated the restart of computer APPLICATION0 on behalf of user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM for the following reason: No title for this reason could be found
Reason Code: 0x80020002

Shutdown Type: restart
For more information, see Help and Support Center at
  • Now, I Could figure out that User NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM Has initiated a restart intintionally.

Thats All Admins.
