Hi

I have a work laptop and the bluetooth is deactivated; as it is company policy for security reasons.

Can anyone give me some advice on how to re-activate it?

Welcome to Geekzone... If this is a work laptop and there's a policy against it you should consider what would be the consequences of trying to unlock this feature. Will the company give you a warning or fire you?

Better not touch the thing...

Yes your probably right, not sure if it would be something that noticable. Thanks for the advice

Perhaps your work has a blanket no un-needed services policy, and may in fact enable it for you if you put a valid case/reason to them.

Definitley do not bypass your companies policies! You may find yourself without a job...

Yes sounds like it might be a good idea to leave it until the enter the modern age and allow us to use the bluetooth
