At the right hand corner of I.E. click the HELP a box will drop down and click About Internet Explorer. A small window should pop up showing what your using. Example. snipit

I am using Vista Premium Home Basic which usually require me to use Explorer 8. I have found, though, that there are many programs and operations I don't understand and don't work well on Explorer IE 8 (and especially the Beta). My solution is that I have gone back to IE 7 and I have had no major problems with it. If I know how to use one thing and use it well, then I usually go with the one I KNOW BEST!
"If it ain't broke, don't fix it! "That's not my saying, but I like it.
I suggest you use what's best for YOU! You don't have to use everything and every update if you feel more comfortable with an older program. Until get familiar with a band new version, I try it out. Then if I don't like it or it is too hard, I use an older version. I haven't had any problems and I can run it faster and easier that the "newest" stuff.
You might want to give it a try and see. If you do decided to go up to the better version, please be careful on what you put on it. It sometimes reacts VERY differently from your previous installations. Make sure you know what you are doing and adding on,or it might do "funny things" to your browser!. (you can always go to your programs and unistall it, if it doesn't work for you.That's the good thing about Windows and Microsoft!)
Just an observation that happened to me!
