Help is there anyway to fax without a fax card and no internet connection? I believe that an old tech pieced together programs, buried in Windows XP Pro Sp3 and is on a Dell system. Is ther anyway to check it out. I ran the standard spyware proga and found some suspicious files and went on a hunting expedition into Win Xp folder to view the files and noticed that it had some US Robotics file. Remember there is no fax card, any know fax program (win xp fax was uninstalled) and there is no internet connection. Yet we still seem to have signs of soemone in the computer. Please help> Thanks.

Not all dialup modems were/are internal. Once upon a time they were external too. And easy to hide/steal. The fax application could have been deleted uninstalled or resides on a flash drive. I'm not saying this is the case just offering plausible explanations.
