pairing 2 computers via bluetooth

to start off i would like to apologize in advance if i posted under the wrong subject. anyway, here is my problem. i have an asus g73jh republic of gamers laptop running home premium x64 and an asus eee pc 1015pn running home premium 32 bit. b4 i upgraded my eee pc to home i was running starter and was able to pair the 2 laptops via bluetooth and was able to control the media player from one computer to another. efectivly using one computer as a remote to the others windows media player. after i upgraded to windows home premium on my eee pc i have lost this funtionality. now i still have all the options to control my g73 on the eee pc but they dont work (they try to connect for a little while and then just switch back to saying disconected) and my g73 says that the eee pc is a computer but only gives the option to connect to it as a bluetooth headset. i have uninstalled and reinstalled bluetooth drivers on both machines and have tried drivers from asus website and drivers from windows update all with the same result. im hopping that someone will be able to help me with this because it was such a handy little thing to be able to do.

i am ready to post any information u need (just ask) and i'd like to thank you in advance for any help whatsoever

How'd you get bluetooth to work in windows 7 I thought it was taken out. My Lenovo laptop has bluetooth but says this version of windows (windows 7 home premium) doesn't support it.
