unfortunately, that is a common problem with 98 (I'm assuming you did the upgrade.) it tends to hose the modem drivers, Microsoft says they'll be fixing it in the service pack....  I'd suggest uninstalling then redetecting the modem, probably under the drivers that came built in to win98 or try a standard 28.8 modem

Removed all communication ports and devices (including modem) then restart the system, the OS should redetect the devices and then you can reinstall the drivers.

May be beating the bush but I take you uninstalled the modem from "device manager"
just make sure that you have no "other devices" showing and no modems what so ever
then reboot and try add new hardware , pick the device yourself and add a standard 28800 modem on your com2. I know its a pain but worked for me and have had no probs since.

good luck
