G46vw + Window 7 = Bluetooth Nightmare

Hey guys about 2 weeks ago I loaded windows 7 on my G46vw. I got all drivers installed. However Bluetooth was not working right. I could not connect to any devices though I could search and find them. I eventually got bluetooth working perfectly by installing a particular driver. I don't remember which one. I had all my drivers backed up except the Bluetooth driver of course -_- :facepalm: So I yesterday I accidentally inserted a Bt dongle which borked my driver for my on-board BT adapter. That makes no sense to me but it did. Now I tried installing this driver (link below). I believe that is the correct one. But no dice. Now I cant even find any BT devices let alone connect. any help would be appreciated. Remember I am running Windows 7 x64. a Screenshot is below. DO LOOK AT IT!

Sorry. Guys. This is solved now. Its funny how I troubleshoot this for two days and then I fix it 15 minutes after posting a thread. Oh well. i will be saving the driver software I downloaded this time. Now if someone could tell me what the 2 Bluetooth Peripheral devices are that hve no drivers that would be awesome. It confuses me as the only wireless devices I have are my mouse which works now and my wireless Logitech keyboard which actually does NOT use bluetooth. it has an adapter but is not bluetooth. So what are those devices?

Ok I am really confused now. I rebooted and my bluetooth is broken again. everything looks find in device manager besides those two warnings for those two peripheral devices. but bluetooth is broken again. driver is installed as far as i can tell. Please help!

Edit: Got it working again. WTF is going on? Its like my BT only wants to work when it wants to. I think it works like this. When I add a device like a mouse it works fine. Until I reboot that is. After the reboot I have to re add the device. Buyt it doesnt always see it right away.
