Modem won't uninstall!

  1. My AMD 64 3200 and Asus A8N-E work quite well with Win2K but I have not found a modem that works well with the local phone company equipment. I tried installing an ActionTec/Motorola SM56 that was OEM on a Dell Dimension 8100. The modem did not work out and when I went to uninstall it as soon as the uninstall button is pushed the machine shuts off and re-boots automatically without uninstalling the Motorola modem.
    I took the modem out of the slot and it still is listed in device manager and in phone and modem options.
    Anyone know how I can uninstall the modem?

    I have CCleaner on my other machine. I will give it a try.
    How do I run Registry Repair on WIN2k?
