Okay so should I un-install anything before I download this? Or will it, I guess, over write itself?

99% of today's drivers will overwrite the old one.

Well I installed the drivers and it's still giving me that little triangle. I also tried to run my Sims 2 game and still got this error message:

And what about these two things found by the Uniblue Drivers Scanner:

Via Rhine II Fast Ethernet Adapter
Realtek AC'97 Audio for VIA ® Audio Controller

I should update those right? I tried to do so with Uniblue itself but it wants me to buy it first. Can I find these online somewhere?

Go back to Device Manager, and see, if there are any yellow "?", or "!" marks there.
Forget about Uniblue.

Then, you don't have a driver problem. Now, you can see how money hungry programs, like Uniblue work.
In general, you leave drivers alone, unless there is some problems with them. It doesn't look like you have any.
Let me do some more digging about your error.

Right click on SIMS shortcut, click Properties
In Target window paste this:
"C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\TSBin" -w
Click OK.
Try to run the game again.

NOTE: The actual path may vary according to the directory where you installed the game. Make sure the -w goes outside the quotation marks and there is a space between the last quote and -w.
