Dialler.exe is being used by another program

I have a database - Lotus Approach if that is relevant - with buttons next to phone numbers that I click on to dial out. This used to work flawlessly all the time.

Now, more often than not, I get the warning message "Another program is using the selcted Telephony device. Try again after the other program completes". On day when it works it is still fine.

When it works properly I see "dialler.exe" in the processes tab of the Task Manager as long as I am using it. Then it goes away. All very correct.
On days when it is playing up it is there only while the error message is present.

Is there some way of tracking down what spurious program is grabbing my dialler.exe?
Is there an unneeded Service that I can disable?
Any ideas?

Sysinternals has some programs that may get to the bottom of this.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?
