Serial Port Reinstall

Hello.

The serial ports on one of the PC's here is using unsigned drivers. I tried
uninstalling the ports in Device Manager and rebooting but it reinstalls the
same unsigned drivers afterwards. There are three identical PC's to that one
in the office and they are using signed drivers. What files other than
serial.sys and serenum.sys do I need to copy to that machine to get it to use
the signed drivers?

RE: Serial Port Reinstall

you can disable them by using any of the following methods:

Disable the device in Device Manager (you may have to click Show hidden
devices on the View menu, and then disable the device under the Non-Plug and
Play Drivers branch).

Uninstall the software that installed the third-party driver by using the
Add/Remove Programs tool in Control Panel.

Rename the driver in the Winnt\System32\Drivers folder.
