Bluetooth Services Removal?


G

Guest

Have new bluetooth cell phone. In setting up Bluetooth I foolishly selected
the Audio Gateway and Wireless Headset Services to be installed (when I
should have selected none). These are interfering with the bluetooth sync
function (which I do want) and I would like to remove them. I cannot find
any way to do that. I have even tried removing the phone device from
bluetooth, but everytime I reinstall it those services automatically appear.
How do I get rid of the dang things?

Can you disable them in Services?

Open Services...
Start | Run | Type: services.msc | Click OK |
Scroll down to and double click Audio Gateway |
If running hit the Stop button | Set to Disabled under Startup type |
Click OK

Do the same for Wireless Headset.

To remove/delete a service.

Open Services...
Start | Run | Type: services.msc | Click OK |
Scroll down to and double click the service you want to get rid of |
Take note of the Service Name (not the Display Name) | Close Services

Then open a command prompt...
Start | Run | Type: cmd | Click OK |

Type: sc delete Whateverservice

and hit Enter

Reboot.

Or open the Registry Editor...
Start | Run | Type: regedit | Click OK |
Navigate to...
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Whateverservice

Delete it and reboot.

I don't believe these are Windows Services in the classical sense. They do
not show up in the Windows XP Services Manager. There are a number of
Bluetooth entries in the registry, but they are not named in a way that makes
it obvious what they are or which keys to delete to eliminate the items I
want. I considered removing my entire bluetooth install and reinstalling.
However, I sync my Palm with bluetooth and also have a bluetooth headset that
uses the Headset Voice Gateway. They were a pain to get working and I'd hate
to have to do it again.

Correction on the names of the Bluetooth Services I enabled. The correct
names are "Headset Voice Gateway" (listed as Audio Gateway in it's
properties) and "Dial-Up Networking".

Any other ideas?

Get one of these and disable the two items from starting.

[[StartMan is an extended 'msconfig' Startup Manager, designed to take
control of all those pesky programs and background services that load and
run at logon - most of which you probably don't need. As well as providing
the usual trouble-shooting options to enable or disable startups, StartMan
also permits the removal of startups.
Duplicate Detection and Removal, a unique feature of StartMan, can be
configured to remove all duplicates automatically, with or without
prompting.
Orphan Detection and Removal. As above, for orphaned startups.
Executable Detection and Removal. As above, for executables.
Includes a full range of sorting options to make it easier to locate a
specific startup - by name, by filename - even by command line parameter! ]]

StartMan v1.3.96

Startup Control Panel is another pretty good application.

[[Startup Control Panel is a nifty control panel applet that allows you to
easily configure which programs run when your computer starts. It's simple
to use and, like all my programs, is very small and won't burden your
system. A valuable tool for system administrators!]]

Download the EXE Version and just extract the executable wherever you want.

Tried both. Neither service appears in either one of them. Again, I don't
think these are true Windows Services, even though when you drill down
through "My Bluetooth Places" from the phone to the "headset phone gateway"
for example, one of the tasks Windows makes available to you is "display the
properties of this service".

I keep thinking that right clicking the service or the device should allow
you to delete/remove, but no such luck. There are also no options for that
in That only allows you to configure. There are also no options for that in
the Windows Bluetooth Pane. Any other ideas?

Since I know absolutely nothing about your software, I don't see how I can
be of anymore help. As if I was any help to start with. ;-)

Contact the maker of your bluetooth cell phone.

You should have gotten a Bluetooth configuration system. If you access this,
you should be able to re-configure the Bluetooth services.

If not, then uninstall and re-install the Bluetooth software/drivers.
