WIndows XP Fax/Modem

By Navjun ·
My PC is connected to my phone line and it tries to pick up my phone calls, And i like to stop that from happening. I even Uninstalled the MS Fax software that comes with Win XP and make sure my win fax is not running and its set not to pick up any calls. but the computer still does. Now what i do is that i disable my modem and enable ot every time i need to fax out something.

Please help me

Thank You

You need to check your modem and FAX settings.

Under FAX settings, you need to disable the receive option.

In modem settings, you need to look for any auto-answer settings, and disable them.

You may also want to check under "Services", in the "Control Panel\Adminstrative Tools" that "Routing and Remote Access" is not running. Also check under Network Connections and make sure there is not a connection defined for Incoming Calls, used toallow others, or yourself, remote access to your computer. This is a long shot, but a possibility.
I hope this helps.
