As stated above, it is a process that is used by your modem, and is usesless but harmless if you don't use your modem. It can be disabled in msconfig.
It appeared after configuring my blackberry 8700 as a modem on my laptop. Although I also have a modem installed, this did not appear until I made the change.
idk, its slowing my computerdown, how do i remove it?
if u dont have dial-up u dont need it. delete it
came pre-installed on my laptop, it is a program to switch b/t internet dial-up connection and incoming voice calls. I just rt-clicked on it in my sys tray to exit, and took it out of my start-up menu. Hasn't bothered me since.

I had MoH v92, just run MSCONFIG.exe in your start menu\RUN look for LtMoH application in the start-up menu and remove the check mark. it will not start up again unless you re-check the box if ever you need to use a dial-up connection.
