Prolific PL-2303 driver 22.214.171.124 causes crashes
Version 126.96.36.199 of the Prolific PL-2303 USB serial port driver is buggy. It caused an IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (0x1000000a) crash twice, both times when I was sending a file to a serial port via copy in cmd and I aborted the copy with Control-C. Windows fails to find an updated driver, but a much newer driver can be downloaded from Prolific. I'm now using version 188.8.131.52, which seems stable so far. This is in 32 bit Windows 7.
