this is most likely the Intel Management engine "SOL" serial over line driver that is part of the "AMT" remote access package
unless you are on a corporate domain you should disable the "AMT" in the z230 bios which will also remove the missing com 3 driver error intel AMT has know security issues
YOU WANT sp84650 WHICH IS THE WINDOWS 10 DRIVER PACKAGE
Intel Management Engine Software VERSION: 188.8.131.525

sorry, in rereading my reply i see that i was not very clear
what i'm trying to say is that unless you need "AMT" it should be turned off due to security issues
my link to the AMT package also includes the latest AMT firmware which fixes some security issues
