    Good Evening Britton 30 and Carwiz,
    I have ordered a USB 4.0 Bluetooth Receiver which should provide me with a "smart" receiver on the Windows 7 laptop. Thus the W7 will be able to detect the heart-rate chest monitor. But, as you have noticed "Carwiz"; a compatible app has not yet been found which loads onto a laptop.
    However; a desired app ("Heart Tracker Pro") will install on my old Nexus 7.
    So one thing I am going to try is to see if I can use the new 4.0 bluetooth adaptor on to the "USB" socket of the N7. I know that the problem with that is that the socket on a N7 tablet is much smaller than the standard USB which will be fitted to the new 4.0 adaptor. I will overcome that because I have ordered a Female to Female USB joiner. I will then use the standard power cable for the N7, plug one end into the N7 and the other end into the new joiner. At the other end of the joiner I will plug in the new 4.0 unit. It,s all good fun and will probably fail because the N7 may not be happy to have the 4.0 plugged into it!
    Sorry; I prattle on more than my wife!
    Regards from Ron

    Update on Bluetooth problem.
    I have now fitted a USB emulater and thus allowed my Windows 7 to operate with "Bluetooth 4.0" ("Smart" or "BLE"). So now I have paired my " Smart" Polar H6 heart monitor with my W7. Then I installed "Bluestacks" - which allows you install android apps onto a Windows computer. Next I installed Android's "Heart Tracker". Sadly, currently, the app will not play correctly as when I click " Start"; instead of starting the app the screen reverts to the home page of "Bluestacks". I have written to " Bluestacks" & "Heart Tracker". No replies yet!

    +1 on the Rep for reporting back. This is good information to know; However, it is Beta and the links use a Bitly link which I block so I couldn't review it. Being beta, there may not be much support for it other than to report problems.

    Be careful what information you share with Bluestacks. Their agreement allows them to use anything you provide, including system specs, and share it with others. It also states they will track what you download. Not just downloaded with Bluestacks software but also any download to your system. This sounds to me like a serious invasion of privacy. It also sounds like the software includes some hidden logger with a backdoor link. I would check your system to see what's running.

    Corrected link - apparently, this site blocks it too.

    Thanks for that "carwiz",
    I have just checked my "task manager". I think it looks ok with 1 user (me); the only applications running are mail, google and this forum. I do notice however that most of the services have my name attached to them but there are about 7 that have no name against them. e.g. atieclxx.exe
    As for anyone knowing what I download - I'm 77 and have almost lost interest in naughty things! However; I do bank on-line

    77 don't mean anything! :) I think atieclxx.exe is part of the ATI graphics support. If your PC doesn't have ATI graphics hardware, I'd be concerned but since it does you should be ok. The loggers and trackers would most likely be a Service. It wouldn't show up in the Processes list of task manager. Run your updated AV scanner just for grins.

    Good Evening "Carwiz",
    Excuse my possible ignorance; but what is "grins".
    Also, which Scanner are you suggesting - I have several possibilities:-
    Ccleaner, TUU, Malwarebytes Pro, Eusing, Microsoft Security Essentials, Auslogics, Glary Utilites, Hitman Pro, ADW Cleaner, F Secure online scanner, and Mcfee Security scan plus.
    Of course I dont need any of these on my "Chromebook"!

    Sorry. Grins is a US slang meaning to do something that produces amusement, glee or other pleasing emotion.

    That's a lot of AV stuff running. Run Malwarebytes' full scan.

    Good Afternoon from the UK "carwiz",
    Having just run "Malwarebytes" and not found any nastiness; I can report that my lips are spread out to their widest extent.

    Good to hear Ron.

    "Grins" is also a shortened form of "Grins and Giggles" meaning more or less, let's do it for the fun of it.
