My manufacturer-installed modem (under Win ME) has worked for over two years and suddenly cannot dial out properly. Another (related?) problem has been MS IE freezing after a few minutes when the modem was working and having to constantly reboot the system. Norton did not show any virus, but....

...I re-installed modem software and it worked once, but not thereafter. The PC can 'see'  the modem - modem setting information is produced on request.

hi:

>>Norton did not show any virus...

is that the virus definition up to date?
Try using another modem and see if the problems still occur...

if still no joy,

Reinstall ME over itself (back up ur data first, just in case...)

-Boot up with the Windows CD or a startup disk http://www.bootdisk.com/ 
-Type setup or drive:\setup , where drive is your CD-ROM drive
