I down loaded that driver, installed, plugged in, and everything worked OK. Then I shut down and !! everything still worked (no blue screen). Interesting that I had tried to use Device Manager to update the driver and it said "running current" but perhaps the mini-CD coming with the USB-to-serial was not the right driver.
