Re: when OS was Installed on a pc ?

While in Windows, open the properties sheet of the "Program Files" or "Windows" directory and look at the creation date.

That is usually a good indication as to when the system was installed.


If the system was Upgraded to XP, then the date will not be accurate as to when ZP was installed, but as to when the original OS was installed.

Maaz,
thanks fro the follow-up.

Now that the case is done, pls lock the thread using the "close thread" button.
This will avoid "Mee-too" postings and it will add a lock icon to the thread which signalizes that the case is done.

TIA
