' EXAMPLE:

'    Console.WriteLine(String.Format("The system's up time is: {0} days, {1} 
' hours, {2} minutes and {3} seconds.", ts.Days, ts.Hours, ts.Minutes, 
' ts.Seconds))
Function GetSystemUpTime() As TimeSpan
    Dim pc As PerformanceCounter = New PerformanceCounter("System", _
        "System Up Time")
    pc.NextValue()
    Return TimeSpan.FromSeconds(pc.NextValue())
