A few things to try before I start looking into more drastic options. I did a quick google search and it seems the gs4 people have a similar problem but at 66%. One person said that by using the usb on the actual motherboard not the front or pci/pcie slot it worked. I would add a recommendation of uninstalling the drivers restart the pc then reinstall the drivers without the phone plugged in restart again and make sure you use a built in usb 2.0 (make sure its not 3.0 or 1.1). also if you have the samsung usb cable use that if you don't and fail try a different one. if you tried everything and you do have a usb 3.0 it couldn't hurt to try it (the first time I used the verizon utility was on 3.0 and it worked fine for me). I will hopefully have time tomorrow to explore this a little but my schedule is packed. I can look at the forums on my phone every hour or so but no access to a computer because I am running around.
Ideas that came right before I hit submit but I don't feel like changing my post:
Make sure your pc is updated 100% (especially drivers, you may need to go to the manufacturers website to get motherboard drivers. widows update is ok but not 100% recent)
Make sure you install the phone drivers with kies (check the install unified drivers option at the end of install. or if its already installed click trouble shoot connection in kies)
Make sure kies is completely closed before you open odin or verizon utility (Reboot should take care of that)
Before you open odin or verizon utility make sure no unneeded programs are running (once again that last restart should take care of that unless you have programs auto launch on start up)
Open odin or Verizon utility as administrator
Lastly if you go to try a different usb cable or port you should click that trouble shoot connection button then make sure you completely close kies before you plug the phone in. I know that sounds like a pain but its the only way to make sure every base has been covered. sometimes the biggest problems are from the smallest detail. Also it looks like it is running fine until you get to the big file which is the system file. I am wondering if perhaps you are on a usb 1.1 and that is why the over one gigabyte file fails to transfer.
