Upgrading to Explorer 8

I think I would like to upgrade  to Windows IE 8. But first, here is my question: How do I find what version of Internet Explorer I have. I have tried looking under IE properties, but that didn't help. Thank you in advance for the tip.

Try Help > About.  I use Firefox, but if I remember correctly, that is it - or close to it.

Do you have the Windows automatic updates feature enabled on your P.C. ? If so, were you never prompted to upgrade to IE8 by it ?

Certainly ! It's more secure than prior versions, and doing it is easy especially if it is automatically done via the Windows update website. Just let it rip !
