Lead article on PC Advisor home page says MS have updated MSE to V 2.I tried upgrading mine from within program but says its up to date V is shown as,

Interestingly the link in the article is for V 1.0.2

I'm confused is 1.0.2 version 2 was version 1 1.0.1???

Answered my own question. Looks like you have to download new version from MS, rather than update from withinn V1

Down load click here and it will install the latest version and replace your present installation. Very simple.

V2 has been out around a week now and still not offered as either a manual upgrade or via Windows update.

Just as an aside, I'm always somewhat reluctant to force upgrades before they appear on Windows Update as I had huge problems simply installing (upgrading) from IE7 to IE8 when it was out of beta and available for all to download. Nothing but problems with the install failing in odd ways... I even opened an MS support case and even they could not resolve the problem. Thank goodness for Acronis.
When IE8 finally appeared as a WU it installed in moments with no hassle.

So I'll wait :)
