So I got a new Sony Vaio laptop with Windows 7 64-bit. Right out of the box, I could connect my phone and ipod touch 3g to my laptop with bluetooth flawlessly. I could listen to my ipod through my computer speakers with bluetooth, and send/recieve files with my Motorola Droid. But I woke up this morning after Windows automatically installed updates for Windows 7, and now I cant do either of the previously mentioned. my phone fails to send files every time to my computer, and my computer says it cant connect to my ipod because of a missing peripheral driver. But when I try to find and download the driver, it can't be found anywhere. Help?

After hours or tinking around I had a brilliant idea. I went to Start, searched for "bttray", and clicked open file location. Then I right clicked on "bttray" and made it compatible for Vista. I also clicked BTStack Server, and changed it to compatible with Vista too. Then I double clicked both of them, and I guess it is working now.
Worked Great. I have Windows 7 64-bit and making those two files compatible with Vista
