Bluetooth doesn't work after windows update

  1. Hi,

    I have a USB Bluetooth Dongle. I use this with XP sp3 that I keep fully updated. I did an update today, and following this my bluetooth dongle does not work.

    I have used the windows update site to look at my update history and it tells me that one of my udates was this:

    iAnywhere - Other hardware - ISSC (EDR) Bluetooth USB Adapter

    I think that if i remove this and try again my bluetooth dongle should work.

    edit: I should add that I am unable to find this program to remove it - which is why I am posting.

    I have already tried to uninstall and reinstall the driver and it doesn't seem to do any good.

    Does anyone have any ideas please?


    I have a ghost 2003 image that I took today just before doing the windows update. I could just restore the image, but am a little nervous because I have never done it before.

    You'll be glad to know I stopped being a WUSS, and restored the Ghost image I made this morning. It was nerve wracking but went well. I'm posting here after all.
