I did have a quick look in control panel but it wasn't showing so I removed the card itself. Your replies reminded me that the modem was originally from 98se days and not fully compatible with XP [No Fax facilities] working from XP's driver and not it's own. That is why there is no mention in control panel, add/remove.
It is of course showing as "Best data/Fax modem" in device manager so I will remove it from there in the morning then remove the PCI card itself. I'm sure this will put things right so will tick the thread.
Once again many thanks to both of you for your speedy and helpful response. j.
