Windows 7: need some assistance with upgrading Graphics Driver (??)

need some assistance with upgrading Graphics Driver (??)

when I ran online test on intel site to check for latest updates, it showed I needed to update graphics driver and I was provided link to download & install. I have downloaded it, its 37MB "Win7Vista_151719"

Now, when I open it up... I get asked - "Do I want to Automatically run WinSAT and enable Windows Aero Desktop Theme (if supported)"

now what is this ? Do I need to enable it or not ? I didn't wanna risk before getting this cleared up on how I should proceed ? I didn't know how to check, what my current settings are either, so some help would be appreciated on this regard, so that I can proceed with the upgrade.

I'm not sure if this is of any help to you, I have - Mobile Intel(R) 4 series Express Chipset Family

Hi there .. WinSAT = Windows System Assessment Tool, which creates that Windows experience rating ... I think it is scheduled to run once a week by Default .. The question is do you want Windows Aero Desktop theme that is your choice ...

hi Maxie, thanks for the help

I don't mind having WinSAT on but I'm not sure about Aero theme, as I haven't used it neither have I seen it before. I don't see any theme named as Aero in my personalization at the moment.

If I don't tick this option, will the winsat stop functioning weekly once or is the update referring to an winsat test immediately after this upgrade prcoess ?
