that sounds rough
- what OS were you running?
Belkin uses the same core Bluetooth Windows offering asmany other manufacturers (from Widcomm) - there were many revisions of the Widcomm software released though - so it's always worth while checking the vendors support site for the latest versions (each vendor supplies a version for their adapter)
have to say - i've installed plenty of adapters in my time and never had as bad an experience as you (touch wood) - i've had clean installs and uninstalls particularly with the Widcomm software
it's a big enough update to a system installing many COM ports and virtual lan adapters and integrating into windows explorer - so it's needs to have as clean an install as you can give it (i.e. having it running on it's own when intalling)
hope you have better luck next time
