Hi there
I just need to know how to see which service pack (whatever THAT is!)is associated with the IE 5.5 browser I'm using - I'm installing a patch and there's one for IE 5.5 Service Pack 1 and another
for IE 5.5 Service Pack 2 - how to tell which one I've got would be a great help!
Cheers

Hi Lynne.
If you click on the help button on your browser window and then about internet explorer it will show you what version you have. But I would recommend you go to IE6

From experience, stick to 5.5
But use the other reply to check updates and version.

Thanks Trev, but checking out the version doesn't tell you which service pack you have...
( I've got Version 5.50.4134.0600)
Any suggestions on how to suss whether it's service pack 1 or 2?
Thanks

Hi Lynne,
Like an earlier post said, go to help/about internet explorer..

Then look at 'update versions:' If it has 'SP2' written there you have service pack 2.

Lynne Just go for SP2 this version will have SP1 also so it wont matter Also when you go to instal if you already have SP2 installed it will tell you and give you the option to overwrite or not.
