Tip & How-To about Microsoft Windows XP Professional for PC
The newdev.dll is something to do with SP3 being installed, however if you try with SP2 you will get the Can't Open Bitmap and still you will be frustrated.
If you have SP2 installed you will recieve the error
If you download this file it has both NEWDEV.DLL versions, you will need to restart you PC in safe mode to replace the DLL file then restart, see if you can get it to work I didn't and gave up in the end I even tried the installer for the origonal modem also included all without any luck.
In the end I removedall traces of the driver using the jv16pt v188.8.131.52 FREEWARE version, the 2009 version is about £25 but if you like the free one the latest will impress you as you can remove services and control panel shortcuts.
Hope this helps you I will find another fool proof method soon I believe that if you use doctor100.exe from the AOL CD you can remove the driver however I don't have one so I can't try this at the moment.
30 Trial Version link
After you have installed this trial version it will place a buy me now icon to the desktop I recommend that you do there are many other tools that perform similar functions, CCleaner from Piriform is probably the best freeware alternative that deals with registry and applications but doesn't give you the control of the power tools.
It is also available for the U3 stick drives now at the suppliers website so you don't have to create your own I use this loads on PC's that I fix to remove all the **** in the cache, cookie and almost all temp files that clog up your regsitry.
