http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-028426.htm#pcisimple leads to the file you've got. Have you installed the other drivers for this board from Intel first - particularly the chipset drivers first as directed here: http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-031891.htm?wapkw=(driver+installation+order) ?
You could also re-download your ME file to ensure its not corrupted.
Kiwi Thanks for your help.
Windows finally found the driver by itself (pressing the "fix issue" button on the error), although this action failed all the time this time it worked- maybe because i updated the chipset driver as you suggested...
A classic example of just why the Windows native drivers (that come built into the OS) should be your second option and only used if there are no Intel provided drivers for the hardware or (as in the case of my Intel HD Audio/IDT CODEC) there are bugs with the Intel provided drivers which rule out thier use.
Windows built in drivers often miss out support for advanced functionality and reliance on them can definitely cause problems down the line (as seen here). It'd be worth your while updating all your drivers selm90, to the Intel ones if possible. Glad you've resolved this issue.
