you can also look at the process, and see when it started, and take the delta from sysuptime –  SpacemanSpiff Aug 11 '12 at 13:59

Look in the event log: The service control manager logs every time a service is stopped or started.

Building on Christian's answer... Use PowerShell:

(Get-EventLog -LogName "System" -Source "Service Control Manager" -EntryType "Information" -Message "*Computer Browser service*running*" -Newest 1).TimeGenerated;
