Download Belarc Advisor from this website

it's free for personal use. It will tell you what
is installed on the system including all windows updates. If it says "Enhanced host controller" under the USB heading then you have USB2 installed.

How did your son know? If you connect a USB 2.0 hardware to a USB 1.1 port a message should appear on-screen to inform you of the speed difference.

Was this the message you saw or is he judging by some other method?

"Unfortunately, the phrase "USB 2.0" does not necessarily mean 480Mbps of throughput. USB 2.0 now has three different signaling rates: Low Speed (1.5Mbps), Full Speed (12Mbps), and Hi-Speed (480Mbps). "
