Windows XP not Booting or shutting down



Since I installed a Bluetooth Adapter on my laptop running Windows XP (Home) I am having trouble starting and shutting down. On starting up it freezes just passed the Windows XP screen - I have to switch off and on and from the screen that appears select the last known configeration option and then most times it boots ok. All is then fine until I shut down windows it then freezes at the shutting down screen and I have to switch off manually.
I have all the latest XP updates+ SP1 installed.
Hope this makes sence!!!
Please advise - many thanks.

one word: drivers.
Windows XP (even with SP1) is known to have troubles with bluetooth related devices. There is nothing more to do than to wait for driver updates for your adapter.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
