Right-click on the icon, and it should allow you to close it out. But before you do it, see if there are any other options in the drop-down list and see if you can change them to no load up.

As to why it happened?.. Not sure about that. Maybe your modem is set to "come alive" after a specified time or a period of time has gone by.

You can always go into the Device Manager and then delete it, and although Windows will load it back up once you reboot, just let it install the drivers and just don't use it.

Worse comes to worst, you can always remove the modem from your computer, since you have cable Internet.
