Win 95 wants me to use standard modem driver instead of my US Robotics

Hi

I successfully installed the driver for my US Robotics 33,6 external voice modem, (US Robotics sent me the correct driver via email).
It works fine but every time I startup my Win95 it will tell me that it detected a standard modem and it will ask me to complete installation for it.

If I cancel the action it will ask me on the next time, if I complete the operation I will get both US Robotics and Standard Modem installed.

How can I get rid of that nasty startup message without installing 2 drivers for the same modem ?

And yes, I already tryed to install the standard modem beside the US Robotics and then remove the former; it will ask me to install it again on the next startup.

Any help will be appreciated, please reply to g.russo@interferenza.com
Thank you

Install your US Robotics. Reboot. Install Win95 standard modem as
asked. Reboot. Immediately upon message 'Starting Win95' press F8
select Safe Mode from menu. Enter Device Manager (rightclick on
My Computer -> Properties -> DevManager tab). Find standard modem
(installed by Win95), select it and click on 'Properties'. Find
checkbox 'Original configuration' and uncheck it. Reboot.
After completion of above steps you should not be asked for modem
again.
