Is it possible to find out in Windows what the last restart time of a windows service is?

  • 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

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;
  • Do any of these service state change events still get logged in Windows 10? (No entries generated for me when I do "net start spooler" for example.) – StackzOfZtuff Mar 1 '18 at 11:29

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

    This is Event Viewer -> Windows Logs -> System, where Source is Service Control Manager. – ThomasH Aug 2 '16 at 8:07
