Bluetooth adaptor not installed but it works!

Vista Home Basic. Advent bluetooth dongle.

When you connect the dongle it comes up installing, then Vista says it could not find the drivers. Gives me the choice to look for them, ask me again later, or do not ask again.

If I choose to look for drivers it can't find them, not even on the cd.

If I choose "do not ask again" it results in the dongle not working.

But if I choose "ask me again later" the device continues to work as normal.

If it continues to work then surely it is installed??

If it is, then why does it throw up the installation problem I just described everytime I plug the dongle in?

It will be working on just basic drivers built in to Vista , as far as I know there don't seem to be any decent Vista drivers for bluetooth dongles yet , certainly not from Broadcom/Widcomm anyway .
