You were spot on.... Windows did not recognize (see) ANY ports , even though it had previously.
Windows Device Manager did not even show a "Ports" Icon (and associated Icom driver files which were previously downloaded). Why, I don't know?
Closing out all programs, shutting down computer, disconnecting USB (A-B) cable from laptop, restarting computer, re connecting USB cable and then going to Writelog file set up , and selecting Icom 7851 in commport 3 fixed the problem.

This sounds like a problems with Windows thinking the Com port is missing, not setup, or in use by some other previous program. Does Com 3 show in the Device Manager, Ports? Doesn't the 7851 connect by USB and need a special Virtual Com Port Driver? If that's not installed, then Windows will not find the port. There are some tips about ICOM USB ports here:
