Which strongly suggests they are enumerating serial ports

Note sure if you have tried this yet or not. But thought I would
You can use device manager to view the COM ports on the system.
BUT it may not be telling you the whole story unless it tell it
too. There could be "hidden" devices you cannot see. You would
think it is as simple as clicking on the "View" menu in device
manage and selecting the "Show hidden devices" option. But this
does not always show all hidden devices. So try this:
1. Open a DOS window as administrator
2. Enter set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1
3. Enter start devmgmt.msc
The device manager will open. But even though you entered the
command to show all hidden devices in the DOS window the hidden
device will not be shown until you go back to the "View" menu and
select "Show hidden devices". This will show ALL hidden devices
Now if you see some old ports that do not belong on the system you
can delete them.
I added some screen capture to help.
Device manager 1 & 2 are befog using the "set
Device manager 3 & 4 are after using it.
