I installed an external USB modem in an attempt to keep my system from freezing up when I'm online.
My WinModem was apparently the cause - it was sharing IRQ 10 with two other items.
After installing the USB modem, I uninstalled the winmodem by removing from the list in device manager.
But every time I boot up the system, windows re-installs the winmodem.
If you would, please spell out all the steps I take to remedy this.
