IF it was your desk top telling you this the simple answer would be get a USB2 PCI card.
USB capability is part of the MoBo and there for I would imagine there is no Download to sort it
Now laptop- take a look in MicroMart [comes out weekly on Thursdays]
All sorts of computing goodies and spares therein.
I would imaigine a pcima card or a usb2 to usb1
dongle could be a possibility.

As jack has said, high speed USB 2 is a hardware device that your laptop either has or has not. It is not a software update. Look in Device Manager and if the word 'Enhanced' doesn't appear anywhere under USB then you only have USB 1.1. If you plug a USB 2.0 device into a USB 1.1 port you will get a message saying something to the effect of 'a highspeed device is plugged into a low speed port' although the device should still work, albeit at the slower 1.1 speed. If you only have USB 1.1 you can get a PCMCIA to USB 2.0 adapter that will provide USB 2.0 to your laptop. click here for one example.

If your existing USB ports are USB1, then downloads aren't going to make them USB2, you'll need a USB2 adapter card like click here Is it worth it ? Depends what you're using it for.
