When I shut down, I get an "initialization failed" error message containing "USRprbdA.exe". It appears this is a US Robotics software problem. This problem started appox. 5 months ago. At that time I was running a Verizon DSL modem made by Westell and had been for sometime. I recently switched to a cable modem which is RCA.
Haven't run a US Robotics modem for appox. 1 1/2 years. I checked my Device Manager and found the modem listed "US Robotics 56K Voice Win Int". Checked the Add Remove Software area and found no obvious software. I'm not sure why the problem started suddenly. It's more a personal annoyance than a real problem, but how can I fix the problem?
I appreciate any help...Dave

Here is almost the exact situation you describe with the cure being the install of the latest driver for the modem.

That link takes me to the forum homepage. I don't see any reference to the problem. Do I need to register and ask the question there?

Although thats a good idea, Windows will likely redetect the modem and attempt to reinstall it on the next boot.

Go into Device Manager, find and highlight the Modem, select Properties and put a check mark in Disable in this Hardware Profile. You won't be able to use the modem but its seems your not.

The other remedy would be going into Device Manager, highlighting the Modem, selecting Remove and shutting down the computer. You would then have to physically remove the Modem from the machine.
