I think I downloaded the wrong driver software.

If this is a good idea, could someone let ethegnet know how to do that???

Do you ethegnet get paid for this or do you simply partake during idle minutes at your IT support jobs? Could anyone double check on what exactly I should have downloaded? Virus Problem, Please Help.
