I ran into something similar and could not dope it out, what I did was to physically remove the modem delete it from device manager reboot & shut down then reinstalled the modem. What ever was wrong Windows fixed during the re install.

If you test for functionality and it's not clicking, you either need to reinstall or buy a new modem, IMO.

Whoa, do not throw it away.

If you suspect a virus then click the link below and post in the Am I Infected section of this forum and let them find out what virus it is and try to clean it. The majority of viruses can be cleaned and if not, then you just reformat and reinstall.

To the OP: I think you need to stop considering a person who gave you advice such as that...a "techie."

If the modem is bad, replace it.

If the system has a virus...take steps to get help for removing such.

Rather than posting a HJT log...you probably ought to consider first going to BleepingComputer.com - Am I infected What do I do - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/103/am-i-infected-what-do-i-do/ , if you think it's a malware issue.
