I was installing a Quicklink Mobile modem on my Macbook and I think I did it twice. Is there any way to fix that?

G'day and welcome to the forums.

Is everything working well? If so don't worry about it.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

Okay, so depending on the installer, it either overwrote the existing files, or the worst it would have done is create a new copy followed by the number "1" - welcome to the forums, and if there is a new application followed by the #1, you can move the duplicate to the trash (the one with the numeral). Either way, no harm done.
