I've been using MSE for over a year and I believe there's an upgrade availavable. However I can't find anything on it to explain what version I'm using. Can anyone help?

Hello Nontek and many thanks. Clicking on the arrow reveals only an update available, no upgrade. Tells me I'm using version 2.0.6570. Would you know if that's the latest?

If this works - this is the arrow I meant, marked in Red, then click on .... Upgrade Microsoft Security Essentials.

Yes cheers again pal, got your screenshot and that's the arrow I clicked on. No upgrade showing there, only an update. This makes me think I've got the latest version???

The Version number you quote above is for the Antimalware version within MSE, the MSE Version number is currently 1.0.1611.0 shown on the line above Antimalware version number.

Ok, here's what I've got...."Antimalware Client Version"...3.0.8107.0 then "Security Essentials Version" (Above Antimalware)...2.0.657.0. This states..."Copyright 2010". Your screenshot shows "Copyright 2oo9" Could it be the previous version?
