Windows 7: Toshiba Satellite touchpad driver?

Toshiba Satellite touchpad driver?

Inherited a TOSHIBA SATELLITE laptop computer (2008 vintage) from my daughter. It had VISTA on it and an old version of IE. Would not update IE saying it was 'not computable with OS'. So I installed w-7 allowing the 'C' system partition to be overwritten; then installed SP-1 update. Works fine now, except I need to update the touchpad driver. Synaptics was original driver but was erased on the w-7 install. Tried to see if the available download for VISTA from Synaptics might work but it will not install.
The touchpad as it functions from the W-7/SP-1 is pretty sad in my way of thinking. Is there a program or driver I might install to improve it to something similar to as-it-was or maybe better?
Thanks

Synaptics usually recommends using the OEM drivers,

Synaptics' TouchPad device drivers are customized and supported by notebook manufacturers to meet specific driver requirements for their individual products. To ensure the appropriate driver for your device, always use the driver your specific notebook OEM supports.
That being said, since you don't give a model number of the Toshiba, have you tried this one?

Synaptics Touch Pad Driver for Windows 7 (32/64)

It doesn't seem to be tied to any specific model.
