    Why oh why does windows insist on installing a standard modem as well as the US Robotics Fax modem? I don't have a standard modem, I have a US Robotics Fax modem, but every time I delete the standard one next time I start computer it installs it again....help please..

    Try deleting them both & rebooting. It should only find (detect)the US Robotics that way.

    and ithought it was just on my system:p
    i have exactly the same.....usr and standard in my properties,and it always gets re-installed when i un-install it.............i just leave it as it is,as long as your default modem is the usr thats the one that gets used........after all,it cant use something that aint there;)
    ive had no problems at all with it like this,but i must admit at 1st it got me puzzled,and if you set the invisible modem as default,it still uses the usr:confused:
