Never mind, I figured it out. The iusb3mon.exe file still had the Block feature in it's file properties. Read somewhere to right click on the .ZIP file and in the General tab click the Unblock button then Apply. You need to do this before the zip file is extracted or the files will still cary thier Blocked properties.
I uninstalled the USB 3.0 software and Unblocked the .ZIP file and then extracted it and ran the setup again and everything is working fine now.
Maybe Intel needs to mention something about Unblocking ZIP files before extracting them, especially if they are going to provide driver files in a non-self extracting-running format (generic ZIP file).
I read that you could just unblock the EXE file but you need to move it to a differnt folder first, Unblocking the ZIP file and re-installing seemed much easier and that way I wouldn't miss any other files that should have been unblocked.

After you download the zip file, locate it in Windows explorer. Right-click on the zip file and click on "Properties" from the flyout toolbar. On the botton of the "General" tab there is a Security line that says "This file came from another computer and might be blocked to help protect this computer." , next to it is a button labeled "Unblock".
Click on the "Unblock" button then click on "Apply" then "OK". Unzip the file as usual then run the setup program.
You need to "Unblock" the zip file BEFORE you unzip it!!!
Thanks for this post! I just had this happen to me after I updated some drivers for an AOC portable LCD that wouldn't run on my Lenovo laptop. I did just move the file to the desktop, unblocked it, and moved it back in. So far, it seems to have worked. Very annoying though. Google led me here for the iusb3mon.exe prompt. Thanks again.
