SQL 2005 upgrade to SQL 2008 R2

Hi y'll
I just uppgradet my SQL server from SQL2005 express to SQL2008 R2 Express. It seems to have upgradet (at least management studio). But I see the instance running is still a 2005 instance.
Under install i choose the upgrade option.
What that go wrong og what did I for get. Any body who can give me some pointers plz.

Some time it remain the Services of 2005 on upgrade. So better to uninstall 2005 and again install 2008 R2
How did you get to know it is the 2005 instance which is running? Is it a named instance?

Yes it's a named instance. You can see the versjon and model the database is in in paranteses.
I googled and found severall site's with list of versjons and flavours.
