I've just read the Guardian IT section. It says, inter alia, that IE7 should be installed, also the Windows XP SP2 starter pack. Now this'll sound silly, but I don't know how to tell which version of IE I have. When I click on my IE tab I get Google. I can't find a spec. of IE ; so I don't know if I already have version IE7 or not. How do I find out?

Also, how do I do I find out if I already have the XP SP2,? Anyone, please? (or are you still falling about laughing?)

To find the version of IE go to the Help menu ( in IE) and click on 'About Internet Explorer'. To find which Service Pack you have right click on 'My Computer' and click on 'Properties'.

Exactly as Plantsman says. Click Help in the top menu of Internet Explorer then select About Internet Explorer.

A pop up window will open and the top line will say something like :

Version: 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_gdr.070227-2254CO
---------version--------OS----SP--------Date

In my example I am running Internet Explorer version 6 on Windows XP Service Pack 2 dated 27 Feb 2007. The bit in Italics underneath just shows how that number breaks down a bit (If I remember it all right)

if you bought xp and never upgraded your ie then you probably have ie 6 . ie 6 has those green back and forward buttons like in xp. if you have ie 7 they would have little blue back and forward buttons like in vista . but the latest version of ie is ie 8 beta 1 but its still beta so i recommend ie 7 .
