Do I need to keep Intex Matrix Storage Manager?

I'm running Windows 7 x64 on a single Dell Studio XPS 9000
computer with two installed hard drives and one USB hard drive
plugged in all the time. I don't run any RAID setup. My power
saving features are all turned off. I do manual mirror backups of
my C:\ drive using the free version of the Paragon Backup and
Recovery program.

Do I need the Intel Matrix Storage Manager that is sitting in my
"Program Files (x86)" folder?

I ask because it tried to run a DLL a while ago ... my Comodo
stopped it and flagged it. I don't see why I would need this
program at all if I'm not running a RAID setup and never intend to
run a RAID setup.

If your SATA controller is running in AHCI mode (and it should be), then you
need the Intel Matrix Storage Manager.
AHCI enables the advanced functionality of SATA, such as NCQ (Native Command
Queing) which helps your hard disks run at maximum efficiency.

If it ain't broke, then it don't need fixin'.

It seems to be working fine. I just like to get rid of stuff that
starts up by itself, where possible. I won't remove it if there's
any chance it is doing something useful.
