Thanks... the problem was due to the drivers
but the process of getting it corrected was not easy. Windows 7 pretty much took the wheel once I discovered the wrong drivers were originally present. Was not just a simple driver
update... very impressive.
Now that I have Bluetooth working all I can say is WOW. The implementation and presentation of devices in Windows 7 is excellent. I do believe that this is the very first time that EVERYTHING on my computer is working! (knock on wood)
