Windows 7: Issues with Devices and Printers

Issues with Devices and Printers

Dear Seven Forums,

I am having an issue with accessing the Devices and Printers page in Control Panel. Each time I click on it-it never loads (look at the screenie to see my point). This may be due to an issue with my Bluetooth drivers. They install successfully but they can never find a device nor can I open any settings page for the Bluetooth. If anyone can help I would be eternally grateful....This is what is keeping my Windows 7 experience from being perfect.

I should have read beforehand but it seems that CCleaner (which I use regulary) does something to Devices and Printers which kills the page (probably will have to reinstall now....grr.....) but it doesn't fix the Bluetooth issues....any thoughts?

After reinstalling Windows 7 7232 x64-SoLoR edition (which I had before) and DID NOT RUN CCLEANER....The issues all went away Bluetooth runs fine and Devices and Printers loads Device Stage just fine.

Just to re-clarify,

CCLEANER is a great program but should not be ran on any build of Windows 7 due to lack of compatibility issues as it tends to remove important system files... So to save someone some grief (like me) follow this advice!

Mods please close this thread or marked as solved due to no more issues present
