Hi,

Is it ok to uninstall an Agere System HDA Modem software which is taking up 16GB on a Compaq 610 Laptop running on Vista? I believe its only needed for dial-up. Is that right?

Thanks

That is a 56k modem for dialup, if you are not using a dialup connection there shouldn't be any reason not to remove it.
Please note:  My wife broke her radius in three places at the wrist.  This required surgery where a plate and nine screws were attached to allow this brake to heal properly.  She is recovering now and should make a full recovery over the next six weeks if all goes well.  She is doing well enough now that I don't need to stick quite so close to her and will be able to start getting back to the amount of time I was able to invest previously.
 
I would like to thank those of you who have expressed your concerns and best wishes for a speedy recovery.  
 
Sincerely,
 
Dan
