After you DISCONNECT an internet session (important
distinction - CLOSING may NOT do a disconnect), try
starting it again.
If it dials and starts OK (no complaining about the COM port being
open), then your FAX program is at fault - it's incorrectly
reading the state of the COM port, likely due to it being
incompatible with Vista.
May be time for a new FAX program.
