Windows 7: logging of computer start and shut down time

20 Aug 2012   #1

Windows: Windows 7 Professional, Version 6.1.7600, , 32 Bit. Internet Explorer: 8.0.7
logging of computer start and shut down time

Does Windows keep a log of when the computer was started up and shut down?
If so I would like to know how I can view it, or, if not, whether I can do this by enabling some feature or installing some software.
