This could be either be a problem with the registry, a faulty installation of this software, or non-authorised access to the registry (if you are not an Administrator on this PC)...

Is there a physical button on the front or side that can turn bluetooth on and off?

(Colleagues would constantly come to me with Acer laptops saying their wifi wont work, so I would press the wifi button and give it back to them)

Also, not all laptops have built-in Bluetooth. Toshiba for example ships the same software for all laptops, regardless of hardware existing or not. So if you install the driver from the CD, the software will load but since there's no hardware, no Bluetooth.

Laptops either have no Bluetooth, or have Bluetooth built-in or are "Bluetooth ready". This means that there's a slot for their own Bluetooth hardware and the software is installed, but there's no actual Bluetooth there yet.

Are you sure this isn't the case?
