Well you solved your own registry problem once that was removed!

You may now want to manually create a few restore points to have onhand anyways. Generally those are created automatically once anything new is installed like an update while apparently not for the blue tooth addon.

Plus, I can see device and printer now.
I just got back home and logged in to good news indeed. Thanks for letting us know how you fixed it. Sometimes just bouncing ideas off your peers gets the brain working and you solve it yourself, which suites me just fine. Well done.

Hello padekker Welcome to the Seven Forums!

I doubt the OP will reply back here on what value was found for the bluetooth device he had added since this thread is 2yrs. old now. You can however review the guide I posted in Post #9 seen at How to remove the Safely Remove Hardware Icon

That goes into detail on the Safely Remove icon's reg value as far as how to disable and you can reverse it later to re-enable to see it that will help. If you added a bluetooth device yourself and are running into this you will need to find out what that is. Unfortunately I don't have on one on pc here for a reference at the present time.

The one place you can look however is based on information from the MS Hardware Developers site for Bluettoth Registry Entries to see if that will help since it would be in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE branch to start with. As with any registry entry changes be sure to manually create a System Restore point before proceeding there however in case of any "UT OHs! "

Thanks for your reply Night Hawk.
Unfortunately, the "how to remove the safely remove hardware icon" page didn't help. I do not have the registry location "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\nvatabus".

As karlsnooks suggested, I am posting my problem on a new thread.
