My PC's OS is Windows XP Home Edition SP3 with all updates installed. I connect to the internet via a fast ethernet cable modem supplied by my ISP. While looking through my ARP list I noticed that I had an installed program with the title "Intel® 536EP Modem". Can anyone tell me what this is and what it does and if I need it or is it safe to uninstall it as I have no idea?. I see it is also listed in Device Manager under Modems and again in Sound and Audio under hardware. I have switched off the AC'97 sound in BIOS as I have a Philips Sonic Edge sound card installed instead.
I can see it listed on my original bill of sale when I bought the PC but have no idea what it is used for.
