:tazz: At startup, WindowsXP tries to install Fax. Have gone to Start>Control Panel>Add Remove>Components and removed the Fax component. Then I reinstalled it from the XP Installation disk with no success. I do not even use this feature, but I would like to make it go away. Any suggestios?

Hi. Sounds like you were in the right place, add/remove programs, then on the left side add/remove windows components. Remove the check mark on Fax Services. That should do it. Another thing to check is to go to start, run and type msconfig Check the start up tab and make sure fax services is not checked.

I have done as you perscribed, restarted, and the installer still showed up. I checked msconfig>start up and fax service was not listed.

Check in control panel, printers and remove the fax printer, if it is still there (I would think it would go away when you removed the service...). If that does not do it, go to M$ and search on the support page. I got some 100 hits on "fax service"
