I had this problem before and solved it. However could not remember how !!!
I use a broad band for most tasks. Rarely I use my modem to send faxes via
computer.
Today I tried to send a fax, using my modem Zoom 56K datafax dual mode PnP.
I did not manage to do it and all times computer shows a box with a standard
note advising me that "Your modem is being used by another program. Please
end the other program and tru again. if error persists re-start your
computer".
There is no other program running as I have rebooted my computer several
times.
Diagnostics does not work at all.
Eventually there is a startup program taking the modem but I do not know
what it could be.
Sure this situation has been occurred with some of you.
Can you give me a hint of how to solve the situation ?
Appreciate your assistance.

You could have a hijacked system with a dialer, run a full
spyware scan and anti-virus.
