Windows Uptime command

An easy way to find out just how long that Windows server has been up:

Open a command prompt and type NET STATISTICS WORKSTATION and you'll get the following. The 'Statistics since xxx' shows when the machine was booted, along with a bunch of other good info. (Note you can also type NET STATISTICS SERVER, but the info it gives you is a bit lame)
