If you are on broadband then you need not worry because the modem for dialup is not used. If you are worried about it then you can go into the devis manager and disable it there. To do that right click on the "My computer" on your desktop then click on properties then hardware. You will then see devis manager. Click on this and go down the list till you see "modem". If you click on the plus next to it just to make sure it is the only modem listed you can then right click on it and select "disable". This will stop the internal modem or the dial up modem from working. Hope this helps.
looked in device manager but 'modem'not in list...just computer..ACPI multiprocessor... while im here..i do have 'unknown' in list 'primary and secondary IDE controller..and standard dual channel PCI IDE controller...what are these??
Chrissy, when you are in "device manager" you should have a list of all the things in your computer, such as processor, display adapters, sound cards and things like that. Usually there is a modem listed. If you dont have one listed there might not be one in the computer.
