    Unable to Remove BT Devices


    (Note this is a different issue to the previous poster)

    Windows BT stack has always been flakey, but this problem has me stumped.

    I've been using a number of HC-05 serial bluetooth adapters, and I need to delete their pairing info and virtual serial port association.

    If I go 'Device and Printers', right click, Remove Device, Confirm. Nothing happens, no error, no change in the Status of the device.
    If I go to Device Manager-> BlueTooth and remove the device there, it deletes, but on refresh, it reappears.
    If I look at properties->Events for the device I see <time spamp> Device Deleted then several seconds later <time stamp> Device Installed (bth.inf). with Information

    saying Driver Management concluded the process to install driver bth.inf_amd64_7ac329009c88b2a2\bth.inf for Device Instance ID BTHENUM\DEV_201408201112\7&364C998&0&BLUETOOTHDEVICE_201408201112 with the following status: 0x0.


    The same thing happens if I attempt to delete the actual Port (Standard Serial Over Bluetooth link(COMx) in this case the Information is

    Driver Management concluded the process to install driver bthspp.inf_amd64_d2676314a8c299d9\bthspp.inf for Device Instance ID BTHENUM\{00001101-0000-1000-8000-00805F9B34FB}_LOCALMFG&0000\7&1A018E8E&0&000000000000_00000005 with the following status: 0x0.

    Does anyone know what is causing windows to automatically reinstall the devices?

    Are you physically removing these devices from the computers?

    No. These are previously paired UART bluetooth devices that install a paired bluetooth connection and virtual serial port.
