Always go to the latest version of a program unless there is some compatibility issue with it.

I'd recommend you atleast try a different browser such as FireFox or Google Chome instead of just using IE7/8.

It is best if you update to IE 8 as it is more secure than 7. Try FF if you want but I would suggest Opera as I think it is the most fully loaded browser with out having to load up on add-ons. There are hundreds of different skins I'm sure one to most people's liking, built in security now by AVG, mouse gestures instead of always moving and clicking a much easier to use browser. Or try Safari by Apple a nice browser that i am playing around with now, I haven't decided how good it is yet.
