Usb to serial

    I purchased a USB TO SERIAL device that I needed to connect my external 54k Modem.
    Worked wonderfully for 3 weeks & then for some reason the PC recognised the same device as a Microsoft ballpoint (whatever that is).
    Have un-installed the driver & re-plugged but the same issue.
    Has anyone any ideas?
    Thanks in advance.

    If possible uninstall the driver for your device. Download USBdview and run in an admin account. Delete all vendor specific devices including anything related to Microsoft. Reinstall your driver for the USB to serial device . Power down the computer. Attach your device and then reboot.

    No drivers with the device it was loaded automatically.
    What is USBdview?
