    Intel partially locked driver support?

    Yups

      I'm a new Z77 user and using WinXP which I will later replace with Windows 7. I went into the download support page to look for a graphics driver for my Board. There are two drivers listed for Series 7 Boards:

      http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=21117&ProdId=3442&lang=eng

       

       

      They are password protected!!! WTF Intel???

       

      What's next? Pay drivers? I'm a customer and not allowed to use them, it makes a download support page really pointless if you ask me. Is Intel planning to block customer support in the future or why I'm not allowed to use them?

       

      Here another locked driver on Windows 7: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=21135&ProdId=3439&lang=eng&OSVersion=Windows%207%20%2864-bit%29*&DownloadType=

       

      I don't call this a support.
