Bginfo not updating boot time

BGInfo has been around for ages and has been a long time favorite in Windows shops all over the world.While sometimes quirky it worked fine in Server 2003 shops.Today, I tried to power-on my laptop and it booted up normal, except for the fact that Windows Time wasn't showing the current time, it was still showing the last boot-time (Yesterday's).I went to the services panel of the Windows, located "" and set it to auto-boot, as it was disabled in the start-up previously.How many times have you walked up to a system in your office and needed to click through several diagnostic windows to remind yourself of important aspects of its configuration, such as its name, IP address, or operating system version If you manage multiple computers you probably need BGInfo.It automatically displays relevant information about a Windows computer on the desktop's background, such as the computer name, IP address, service pack version, and more.

I have had to include custom VB scripts to get the IP address and OS/Service pack fields to display properly as well.You can also save information from BGInfo to a text file or even a database without even displaying on the desktop, so if you are looking for a quick way to capture information on all the computers in your network, you can use BGInfo and some batch scripts to solve your problem.It’s worth noting that BGInfo displays information by writing text over top of your wallpaper, if you have wallpaper set.Yesterday, for the first time, my laptop blackened out and I noticed it's base was pretty heated up.I Googled the cause and came to know that some laptop shuts itself down to prevent damage to the hardware due to overheating.I shut down my computer and started it again after 15 minutes but it was again showing the last boot time (15 minutes ago). Reset all time-related settings to default and reboot.
