open your bluetooth devices, select the device, right click - properties.
then services tab
uncheck the boxes.

Midnightdraven is right, Service Pack 2 has corrected the bluetooth issue with vista. I have tested it.

really?
coz i have sp2 and it aint fixed it for me!
then again i have a cheapo bluetooth dongle, and you need something name branded to really work.
microsoft may have introduced the bluetooth thinking it would be better, infact they have introduced a crippled bluetooth, where it will only work with certain manufacturers dongles.

I didn't say that sp2 has perfected the bluetooth thing, they made it better than sp1. But overall vista does suck especially with bluetooth. Hopefully windows 7 fixes this issue.

i have a feeling windows 7 wont fix the problem, as I still believe they will only have there allow list (this is buried in the system folders somewhere, that supposedly you can edit to recognise your cheap dongle, but it didnt work for me) the top named manufacturers such as belkin.
Im object to paying 8.99 for a dongle that may or may not work any better than the one i bought for 2.

we'll see, pre-ordered my windows 7 E today, just wish it was out before october.

If windows 7 doesn't fix the bluetooth issue, then I guess I will sync via usb.
