Intel(R)ICH9M/M-E Family 4 Port SATA ACHI Controller-2929?

I performed a driver scan using "Driver Agent" & "DriverEasy"

Its telling me that Intel(R)ICH9M/M-E Family 4 Port SATA ACHI Controller-2929" has an available update but wont let me get the driver unless I pay

1.) what is this driver?
2.) is it worth updating?
3.) any idea how I can fine and install it?

Thanks for the info.

FYI, I am using Windows 7 Ultimate on my notebook. Does that change your recommendation regarding running in Vista mode?

No.. Compatibility mode allows you to use drivers that were written for earlier versions of Windows when a Windows 7 driver is not available...

Maybe I'm doing something wrong here, but it basically makes me download RadarSync and then I cant even download the driver without paying?
