I went to connect today and my dialup connection was gone.  I thought, well, I'll recreate it....but Windows would not let me and said (in the Connect to a Network box):  "Windows could not detect a dialup modem", "Is the modem connected?", "is the modem switched on?"

 

It is an internal modem.

 

I went to Device Manager, and there it is as usual, "This device is working properly".

Doing some searching gave me this solution:

 

It is caused by certain services being shut off for unknown reasons.... definitely unknown in my case (??).

 

Delete or rename the following folder:

c:\windows\system32\logfiles\wmi\rtbackup

(the folder, rtbackup)

 

However, it has some kind of protection and doesn't allow itself to be so changed.  I did it from a DOS boot disk with NTFS4DOS.

 

Everything is working.
