Can one check if computer has USB1 or USB2

My wife has asked me whether or not she has USB2 ports on her computer. I have looked up device manager but how do I recognise a USB" port

Look in Device Manager for enhanced USB controller. it's the "enhanced" which tells you it's USB2.

In Device Manager look under Universal Serial Bus Controllers - USB2 versions have, IIRC, the word Enhanced featured.

Thanks for info.

I have an entry which reads "standard enhanced PCI to USB Host Controller". Does this signify USB2?.

I have this afternoon installed a Belkin PCI USB2 card and can see no mention of enhanced or IIRC in device manager

Remember USB2 speed will only work with USB2 hardware if you connect any USB1 hardware it will
only run at the slower speed even if your USB2 device remains connected.
