Quoted from another web site (nueber.com) found HERE.

Associated with Zoltrix modems - enables the internal modem speaker (so you can listen the dial-up sounds for example). Seems to be for laptops only.

Any malware can be named anything - so you should check where the files of the running processes are located on your disk. If a "non-Microsoft" .exe file is located in the C:\Windows or C:\Windows\System32 folder, then there is a high risk for a virus, spyware, trojan or worm infection!

It is not just for laptops, . . .
I have a carserv problem, each and everytime I try to dial up a connection to my ISP, I get a carpserv needs to close error message. I have even installed a new Hard Drive, and loaded WXP SP1 because I believe that my SP 2 disk is corrupt.

But if anyone can advise me on this I would be greatful, since it is a persistant nuisance.

I can also tell you that, I have found out checking, "sound" ;

There are no mixer devices available. To install mixer devices, go to control panel, click printers and Other Hardware, and thern click Add Hardware

I have tried, . . . there are no Hardware devices found to install.



Also;
Saturday, January 05, 2008 The application, C:\WINDOWS\System32\carpserv.exe, generated an application error The error occurred on 01/05/2008 @ 18:05:07.842 The exception generated was c0000005 at address 73F11A8B (DSOUND)

I assure you it was not my intention to as you say Hijack, . . . My very first statement was in responce to

Albert Frankenmakesense, although you know better than I, this will be an opportune time to do so.

I bid you my fair exit.

and

I thank you for your good advice.
