Windows 7 - Samsung Broadcom Bluetooth not working

My bluetooth device is not working from today evening.
It shows the bluetooth icon in the right corner of the taskbar but i am not able to send or recieve files and cannot discover other devices too.
The bluetooth device is a Broadcom BCM2070 Bluetooth 3.0 + USB Device
i had the latest driver but i uninstalled it and downloaded the driver from broadcom and tried to install it again . But i get a message as "a later version of WIDCOMM Bluetooth software is already installed on this machine.The setup cannot continue"

I even got a message saying " ERROR : Unable to start bluetooth stack service "
In device manager, the device name also has changed to Generic Bluetooth adapter

Screenshots are provided.
