First thanks.
David, unfortunately I applied this method but the result at home did not bring anything. After some time I have all my COM port just like pictures.
I don't know what I do now ?

You can try try using a program Tim recommends called Com Name Arbiter Setter 

http://www.uwe-sieber.de/misc_tools_e.html#arbiter 

This will allow you to clear com ports that are incorrectly set to reserved in the Windows Registry.

Thanks, right click on Remove works but is non-obvious to find. Could you add 'Right-click for removal options' to the hint text for the button ?

It's obvious if you read the CAT documentation ;-)

We'll take your suggestion under consideration.
