Hello! :whistling:

I wrote a tutorial for the latter question here.

On the first question, by "the icon" do you mean that there is an icon in Control Panel itself, or that it still shows up in Add or Remoe Programs?

Yes. :blink:

Please download TweakUI from Microsoft's site. After downloading and installing it, run it and go to Control Panel. There, you will see a list of the current items in Control Panel. Just uncheck the one the modem put on.

Good luck! :whistling:
