Help updating intel graphics driver

Yes i read the stickied thread it did not seem to help answer my questions haha.
Recently google chrome updated to 13 and adobe flash 10.3 ever since then iv'e been having trouble playing flash based content in google chrome. It plays, and games work, but they get very low fps (it did not do this before the update) I read somewhere it could be an intel driver related problem for those using internet explorer 9, but i still have internet explorer 8 nor do i even open it or use it regularly.

& come to think of it, ever since i got this computer its felt laggy, everything i do on it.. i know it isn't the monitor. I can supply more info if questions are asked.

Here is a screenshot of graphics / driver info

No, it's the Java(TM) plugin. Better to be safe and ask first before installing things i know nothing about.

Install it, it's required by some programs to run, not just the intel check.

Thank's for reply. Turns out it's not a plugin it wants to install java onto my computer as a program. Do i have to have java just to run this intel detection webpage? I just hope it will be worth it

Sorry for late reply i have been busy working seems i am always in the studio

I suppose i will give this updater a shot. Is there anyway i can explain some of the graphics related symptoms i have been having so maybe somebody can confirm it is the driver first?
