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.

Some time it remain the Services of 2005 on upgrade. So better to uninstall 2005 and again install 2008 R2

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.
