How do I know what version of Windows I'm running?

Posted: 06-27-2006, 07:13 PM
In "My Computer", Properties, it says I have Microsoft Windows XP
Professional Version 2002 Service Pack 1. But if I go to
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/sp2/default.mspx, it says there: "Your
computer has already been upgraded to Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2)". So
how can I find out which is right, and why is one of them displaying
incorrect information?

Dave;
Then you have Service Pack 1 or an incomplete installation of SP-2.
Get the Network Installation of SP-2, Step 1 on this link:

Follow the above checklist to help be sure the computer is ready for SP-2.

That fixed it, thanks - though I wonder why Microsoft make things so
difficult? :-)
