So how do I get over the issue of connecting to the internet when the system keeps saying that it cannot locate modem or the modem is not responding?

Control Panel>System>Hardware> Device Mgr
Check for any errors, update drivers etc
You may need to physically reseat your modem, or replace it with a known good one (dial up modems are not expensive) if the Device Manager doesn't help you "find" the modem.
The AOL tech is wrong about how many running processes should be present. My system boots with 33. A good program to trim down what "turns on" at start up is Mike Lin's StartUp CPL
You can eliminate programs selectively by the new tab it will create in your control panel.
