Windows 7: Do I NEED this driver?

Do I NEED this driver?

I recently got a new PC and system (Windows 7 of course) and am having a really hard time of dealing with the new system (had WinXPPro before). So this window is appearing when I restart & I have NO idea why OR if I actually need the driver it's about. I'm hoping someone will know what the driver is for AND whether or not I actually need it or if it's just wanting me to install it (even though I don't actually need it).

I have avast! Internet Security installed and wonder if it's got anything to do with that. I'm on broadband too but can't imagine why it would have anything to do with that since I've been on it for many years.

Thank you in advance for any advice! I'm hoping to resolve this soon so I can get rid of the pop-up.

That looks like an Avast deal. Check 'Private' and see what happens.
