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?

Click on the small white arrow next to the word Help, then click on Upgrade.

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?

Supposed to have been last week but they keep putting it off so must be having a few problems with it.

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.

In the pop-up window after clicking on the little arrow, click on About Microsoft Security Essentials.

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?

Very straaaange .... my screenshots were taken just after upgrading MSE, a few minutes ago.
