Hi,

Every once in awhile a window pops up on my screen which says 'GTW V.92 modem, There is an incoming call. Caller ID 'unknown'. I just 'x' out of if. What should I do about it?

Answer the phone? :thumbsup:
If you don't use a dial-up modem, remove it. Anything referring to it in Add/Remove Programs?

I know that I am a little behind the times but I do use a dial up modem. So, should I just ignore this message?

I'm thinking that if you go to the Control Panel and double-click on your modem, there should be a setting there somewhere, where you can disable the alert
