View Full Version : Disable Win modem

01-07-2004, 02:11 PM
In the interests of safety from dialers, I would like to be able to disable the win modem. I have Jetstream (router has a switch) but use the modem for fax and phone dialer.
I can <windows><pause> for the system dialogue, select hardware manager and disable it, but this is slow.
I can pull the cable out, if I can get at it :-)

Does anyone know of a simple & convenient way of disabling the modem? A shortcut would be fine.
The OS is XP Prof.

Why not just run Regular scans with Spybot Search & Destroy, and stay away from the sort of websites that will try and infect your PC with Diallers, namely pr0n and warez websites and you shouldnt have any issues.
