Go into device manager>find the Bluetooch tab>un-install the driver>diable the device.

You wont be able to use bluetooth if you do, nor any thing else that is dependent on it.

With it disabled in device manager? Did you disable all the bluetooth devices?

Boss, You can also disable it in services. Type services in start menu and click it. Then look for bluetooth, right click it, and click disable

You need to be careful when disabling it in services.msc. First that is global so it affects all users on a machine.

Second it affects dependencies.

Very true. My friend here and I were joking earlier about messing with the services. Don't go willy nilly, but you can disable Bluetooth support, as it has no dependencies:
