Found New Hardware box

I have recently got a "Found New Hardware" box every time I start my computer (Win2KPro)- Generic Soft K56 Data Fax - PCI Simple Communication Controller. What is it and how do I get rid of it?

It's a dial up modem, if your on broadband, i think it's best just to take it out.

It may be a matter of going in to the bios and disabling it,that is if its onboard,and you havent just put a modem in the pc.

right click the item in DEvice Manager select properties.

The bottom of the page select do not use this device (disabled)
