    You get this error if the drivers are not updated, or if the driver has gone corrupt (For example: the Vista Service Pack / updater apparently install the Windows driver over the manufacturer's one)


    Steps I would suggest are:

    1. Update Bluetooth Device Driver. Steps to update the device driver:

    i. Click on Start

    ii. Select Control Panel

    iii. Select System and maintenance

    iv. Click Device Manager (If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.)

    v. In the Device manager locate the Blue tooth device

    vi. Click the Driver tab, and then select Update driver

    2. Uninstall the Bluetooth device, restart the computer and install the latest drivers.
