James,
Here's a bit from an old message I saved, it may help your situation:
Glenn

The most common problem is using a programming cable with a
counterfeit Prolific chip with Windows. If the chip is Prolific (check
Device Manager) and you are using Windows Vista, 7, 8 or 10, you must
download, install and select an older Prolific v3.2.0.0 device driver
before you programming cable will work properly.

Check this page for a link to the driver and instructions for
selecting it after it is installed. Only install this driver if
Windows recognizes the chip in your cable as a Prolific type chip.

Hi,
Yes I’m using Window I believe it’s Window 10 I’m pretty sure it’s com6 I 
have three USB ports, tried all of them, they all say I’m plugged into com6. 
Yes when I’m in device manager I have pulled out the cable and it 
disappears. The cable does not start off as com6 only after I go through the 
update. If I don’t update the port, CHIRP will not recognize the cable while 
trying to clone. Also when I first insert the cable it has the yellow 
triangles before updating

Respectively,
