Do you ever get so hooked on your PC that you lose track of time? Windows Elapsed Running Time is a small utility that shows the time elapsed since Windows was started. It can stay resident in the system tray and works with Windows 9x/Me/2000/XP.
You can display the timer next to the Windows clock in the system tray or in its own standalone box if you wish. It allows you to choose the time in hours, or if you're really hardcore, in days. The latest release now features full support of Windows XP themes and has now cleared up bugs that made it show a negative value after 25 days of elapsed running time.
If you've got children and want to limit their PC use or if you really don't trust yourself in front of a PC, this is a useful program but other than that, it does nothing that Windows clock or a simple stopwatch can't do for you.
