Bluetooth drivers appear in Windows update but never seen before.

I noticed bluetooth drivers from Toshiba showing up in WU for my Asus laptop that baffle me , never saw them before in years .

I included some screenshot's to show everyone and it appears it won't work .

Thanks for any information.

Hi ... these would seem to be old Drivers ... Your Laptop originally had Bluetooth ? ...


Looking on the Asus Website that would seem to be the case ...

Thanks Maxie, yeah, my laptop did seem to have bluetooth when i first got it but after a few formats and reinstalls i just never reinstalled them.

I got rid of quite a few things i don't use actually , i was just curious as to why these popped up in Windows update three years later because i never saw them before.

No big deal , thanks for responding as you never cease to amaze me , if there was an award for most valuable helper you would win every time in my book.

If Sean(Brink) reads this i want him to know , PAY THIS MAN, he's worth it . One of the best you got .
