Bluetooth pairing every reboot

    Bluetooth not pairing every reboot

    Hey all I am hoping someone has an easy fix for my issue here. I can pair my android cell phone to the pc via win 8 generic bluetooth drivers and it works after confirming the pair code on both my cell phone and my pc.

    Problem is that once I reboot I can not connect to the cell phone and have to remove the device from the list and discover it again, pair with it again and then it works.

    Am I missing a setting in win 8 that keeps the settings for my bluetooth devices and connects to it once it sees it again?

    Also, is there any better drivers/ software to use other than the generic bluetooth drivers that win 8 uses?

    I have an intel 7260 HMW mini pcie wireless n card with bluetooth 4.0.
