the DBT120 (D-Link USB Bluetooth adaptor) in xp SP2 found my phone as a remote (mouse). What do i do to fix this?

Also, as this product is not on the windows supported list do I need to use only the software that came with the product?

probably you did no pair it properly.

I have the same USB bluetooth dongle too, I use the built in Windows XPSP2 (MS bluetooth stack), however if you want to replace the XPSP2's bluetooth driver with Widcomm's (which has a lot more functions and should come with as a driver for your USB, otherwise check with Dlink's website for driver). Check here in bluetooth guide for instruction on how to replace XPSP2 bluetooth stack with Widcomm's stack.

I'd double check the pairing again, as when you pair your phone using bluetooth, you need to enter a pairing key (either manually, or through a set key on the device itself)
