    Anyway to remove a whole series of devices


    Hi there

    I seem to have a share port device installed about 120 times on Devices

    any way to remove these quickly --the only way I can see is a tedious one at a time . goodness knows how these devices got added many times. I think the device is a portable modem but I only have ONE.

    Does it show in Device Manager like that, too? Try just uninstalling it thru Device manager and see if goes away.
