XP Bootup Malfunction

Immediately after booting up I get the New Hardware Wizard on the screen saying that its detected a new piece of equipment on the system and to follow instructions for connecting it.
In fact its "detecting" my Cable Modem which has been connected for the last couple of years. Usually, a reboot clears the Hardware Wizard out of the way and the modem connects successfully - but what's causing this malfunction and how can I fix it ? Any advice please ?
