... that installing the Bluetooth software disabled Outlook.
Outlook is an important program for me. I maintain all my e-mails on it.
Amazingly, however, repeatedly insisting to Windows that I wanted to start Outlook anyway eventually reversed the polarity and caused Outlook to disable Bluetooth instead.
However, since I was done with Bluetooth and hope never to have to use it again until the next time I buy a new cell phone and have to upload a ringtone when there's no other way to do it, that satisfies me.
I refuse to use wireless accessories on my computer, and this gives me another reason why.
