  Bajetrini 19:22 24 Dec 2007

I have an Acer 5100 running Vista, I plugged in a usb mass drive and it add a com port, I tried it in another usb slot and it added another com port, my question is how do I delete those com ports that keeps adding. I have no printers installed. Any suggestions.

Open control panel
Device manager
Ports(com ports)
right click on port you want to remove, and select uninstall

Merry Christmas

There is no ports listing in device manager in vista.
Can't delete.

I run Vista home premium, and mine are certainly listedon mine as

Ports (com & LPT)

USB serial bus controllers are also listed
