Do I need a driver for...?

Hello guys,

I'm buying a HTC Wildfire mobile phone next week and I just wondered if I need a driver, so my PC reconizes my new phone.

Scroll to settings. Network and connections. Usb utilites and select mass storage and then connect usb. A green droid should now come up. Now click on connect usb storage and the drivers should be done. Also download android sdk and install it

I was just saying that sometimes the drivers need an extra 'boost' from the SDk
