Looking for some helpful suggestions with Bluetooth adapter issues in windows 8

I know there isn't much text information to go on, but I'm ready to answer any questions or additional details you might need.

I have checked to see if I have the needed services running.
I am not able to uninstall the various bluetooth drivers I installed because I don't know how. The method I do know, is to go into device manager and select my usb BT adaptor and uninstall that way, but I can't find it under device manager, only under "view devices and printers".
I am not able to select "enable bluetooth" under the windows 8 windows. It seems to permanantly greyed out.
Any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated.

Re: Looking for some helpful suggestions with Bluetooth adapter issues in windows 8

You should be able to uninstall the drivers like so:
Open Start
Search "Programs and Features"
Select it when it shows up.
You should get a window with a list of all the software installed on your computer, and from there you should be able to uninstall the driver if it is listed there.

Which drivers did you use? Ones from the manufacturers website, ones that came with the adapter, or ones which Windows found through Windows Update?
