this one is, again, important....suggest you get it..http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&ncid=582&e=2&cid=582&u=/nm/20020829/wr_nm/tech_microsoft_security_dc_2
How do I find out which Internet Explorer (5.1?, 5.5?, 6.0?) I have?
assuming you are using the PC version, go to the "help" selection at the top, select it to see the drop down menu and select "about".the latest rev, 6.0 seems stable, i suggest you get it, be *sure* you have the 128 bit encrypted version (assuming you are living in a place where it is not forbidden..r u in the states?).
In your program files folder (on C drive) , internet explorer folder, right click on the Iexplore icon, then properties tab. You'll see a number like this: 5.50.4134.100
