Windows: How to check the original install date

This was a bit of a doozey for me, but very simple to find out.

Go to a command prompt window and type "systeminfo"

This will spit out a whole heap of info. The "Original Install Date" line is what you're after, somewhere near the top.

If you've got a lot of patches installed, it'll flood that line off the screen.

To prevent that, save the output to a file instead.

Type "systeminfo > output.txt". When it's done, open up the file.

Almost as easy as bringing dead squids back to life with soy sauce
