Comes preinstalled with many laptops. It's not something to worry about, but since most people don't use modems anymore, your best bet would be to at least remove it from your startup through msconfig. Saeid

Also used in some cheap Conexant based internal PCI modems (e.g. Zonet, etc.) to reduce modem cost by eliminating modem speaker and enabling the PC's sound card to play dial-up sounds.instead. Not essential if you don't need to listen to dialing and handshake tones. Jack
