I am trying to clean up my computer because it has started to run VERY slowly and taking 10+ minutes to boot up. I came across this program: Agere System PCI Soft Modem and it is taking 5360 mb of space. Do I need this program or can it be deleted. I am on wireless (several computers in our house share a modem) DSL fast access internet with AT&T/bellsouth. THANKS!

Programs don't make your machine run slower. Freeing up disk space will only add more storage. Read this article.

Check for viruses, spyware, malware, useless programs loading at startup, & a large acccumlation of internet garbage files. If you don't practice regular house cleanings, you probably have most of the above.

BTW, the files that you asked about are for your 56K modem. If you still have a modem installed, keep them in place. If you remove them, Windows will nag you to reinstall them unless you remove or disable the modem. Regardless, it has nothing to do with your slowness problem.
