I have recently scanned with, Malwarebytes, Superantispyware, and Spybot, Malbytes found;

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\StartMenuLogOff (Hijack.StartMenu) -> Bad: (1) Good: (0) -> No action taken.

Was corrected.

I have been having some problems with modem, but not in connecting, occasionally, it displays that the phone book was not found, and or another device is connected, although I can not find another device.

The guide in Start, "Show all connections" and "my connection", is there then it's not.

The blue dial up box does not appear when I click the icon on desk top, there is only a small box, that dispalys dialing and then connected, this usually follows the dial command from the bigger blue box.

I did a Modem analytic log, and received info. that the,
"DSR is low while initializing the modem. Verify modem is turned on."

I found the following in DriverGuide Support Forums

I would like to know; would this pertain to my dial up connection ?

I am using the Motorola Speakerphone 56K software modem.
Though the modem can be installed, 90% of the times it cannot send or receive.
When running diagnosis, the log shows the following message :

"DSR is low while initializing the modem. Verify modem is turned on."

I believe this should be configuration setting problem. Can anybody help?

This is a driver issue. All of the modem functions run in software on this modem.
Upgrade the driver.

In fact, I have tested all the drivers but still cannot get it work. Moreover, my modem comes with the original driver from manufacturer. I search the Internet that there can be similar problem from other user but seems that there is no proper resolution.

If your motherboard BIOS has a setting for "Modem uses IRQ" set it to N/A
Microsoft recommends setting the BIOS setting for "OS is Plug and Play " to disable; when using "Windows XP"; XP likes to set up the hardware itself.
Uninstall the modem driver, shutdown the computer, reboot without the modem.
Then shut down and install the modem in a different PCI slot and reinstall the driver.
Try not to use the PCI slot next to the AGP slot; it shares rescorces with the AGP slot.

If still having problems I would suspect a bad modem.
