Open-file-security-warning

Re-installed W7 OS
Applied all driver updates to ASUS MB ..
One of these throws up a window on every boot up ...

"Open-File Security warning"
Then a normal path and option to run or cancel ...

Not sure exactly which file .. but path commence with :
C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller Driver\application\iusb3mon.exe

I have seen the tutorial on chnaging open file security settings .... do I need to do this as it will impact system wide security ... only want to stop it for this one file ?

Or do I just need to 'untick' the always ask option

screen grab attached:

Hello Sargan,

No worries. Unblocking that file to stop the "Open File - Security Warning" will only affect that specific file, and nothing else.

Open File - Security Warning : Unblock File

Hope this helps,
