Bluetooth Connection - Service Error

I'm running Vista Business and I'm trying to install a new Bluetooth mouse - but it won't let me.

To cut a long story short, with the Bluetooth dongle properly installed, in "Services" i find that "Bluetooth services", while on "automatic" to start, is currently "stopped". When i try to start it manually, i get "Error 1053 - service did not respond to the start or cold not respond in a timely fashion".

As usual, trying to find out what on earth "Error 1053" means is a hopeless task - anybody got any ideas??

Thanks

THanks. I tried all that and i'm afraid it made no difference. I'm now waiting for a "hotfix" (sounds exciting!) as per your third link so we'll see about that and i'll report back.
Many thanks for getting back so quickly.

Is the dongle Vista-compatible?

That's a good one. Its a Microsoft IntelliMouse Explorer, brand new. I've updated the supplied software to Vista but i guess it could be a problem. Any ideas how i tell or what i can do about it? Guess i could try installing it on my old laptop which is till XP.

After a lot of searching about i think i've found the answer and this might be of use to others.

Go to click here.

This claims to only apply to configuring Bluetooth on an XP SP2 computer but it seemed to sort my Vista out too.

A simple addition to the Registry solved the issue.

Thanks and regards to all.
