Unhappy How to update drivers on a Biostar mobo

I have a PC about 6 monhs old, and USB ports fail to operate successfuly, causing crashes when transferring files to flash drives.

My mobo is Biostar brand, and I have visited their website, and the USB 2.0 controller is still at version 1, and is quoted for Operating Systems:Windows 2000/ XP x86.
Is it likely this isn't for win7x64?
Has the manufacturer setup my PC incorrectly?

Why do Biostar have a drivermanager program that I can download but have to subscrbe and pay for driver updates????

AMD Phenom II X4 965, Mobo: Biostar A880G+ c/w onboard Graphics & Sound, RAM: 8Gb DDR2, HDDs 2+2+4Tb, Monitor 24"
Using: Win10 64bit with Trend Micro TMS

Download and run the chipset driver. It should have the USB controller in it. The solo USB controller driver is from 2008.
