    About a year ago I had one of my USB ports reconfigured to think it was a COM port so as to be able to use an Earthmate GPS reciever with Microsoft Streets & Trips mapping software. Worked great because all I had to do to switch from the Delorme program to the other was to pull the GPS out of the top port and put it in the bottom one. The question is, now that I don't use the GPS anymore how do I get the bottom port to be a USB port again?
