I have un-installed the device driver for a PCI modem and physically
removed the PCI modem from my PC. But I still see one of the program
related to that PCI modem showing up in the "Change/Remove Programs"
list in Control Panel. The program is called:

"Conexant HCF V90 56K Data Fax PCI Modem"

Doesn't matter how many times I I have clicked at the <Change/Remove>
button next to that program, I still cannot remove it. The entry of
that program name simply blinks once and nothing else happens.

Can someone show me how to remove it? Does it matter if I leave it
there?

I ask this because I am having a problem with my new USB V92 modem
(uses COM3), and a Beyond-TV program (uses COM1). Therefore, I need to
rule out as many possible cause as possible.

Thanks.

You can delete the entry from the list by editing the Registry at
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall.
As long as you do not run in problems with your new modem/software, no
further action is required.

I have got around this problem by re-installing the device driver for
the PCI modem and then un-install it. Thanks for the tip anyway; that
may come in handy next time something similar happens.

I still don't know why the problem occurred when the first time I
uninstalled it but not re-surface when the second time I uninstall it.
But I am glad that it is gone.
