Hmmm... I'm going to Device Manager > Universal Serial Bus Controllers > Generic USB Hub (that's what the first two are called). I right click on the first and there's an option to update the driver. I navigate to the folder where I saved the extracted file and it will only allow me to select the folder where I've saved it (it won't display the actual extracted .exe file). Thinking it'll find the file, I simply select the folder and select "Next". When I do that, I get a message indicating that my drivers are up to date and that no action is necessary. So, it doesn't seem as though Windows 8 will let me purposely update the driver using the file you pointed me to.

Thanks for the assistance (greatly appreciated), but this seems to be a never ending rabbit hole.
