  1. yes you can fax, need a land line and modem.

    if you recently upgraded to winxp (way overdue, considering you should have updated to win7)
    you probably missing drivers for your modem, you can find them on the drivers cd that came with your machine

    This problem appears to occur because the security data base is
    corrupted as documented here:
