Working this afternoon on a laptop that has wireless networking problems -one of the annoyances was the integral dialup modem kept asking to be connected.
Simple sez me disable it- Control/system/device manager/hardware/ modem/ remove- job done.

Then the System keeps coming up -
'Found new Hardware 56k modem'
Hopefully Windoze will learn eventually we do not want to play- But can it be stopped?

Try "Disabling" it rather than remove.
If you cant disable it then under internet options tick the box "Never dial a connection"
