Bluetooth memory leak - driving me crazy!!

I just installed an IOGear BT Adapter onto my XP machine to talk with my
Smartphone (mostly not too smart!!).

Things have gone reasonably well between the two devices; however I've
noticed that the btwdins.exe process slowly eats up memeory to the point my
machine almost stops. I can't even right click without it taking ages to
bring up the popup menu!

Any suggestions to fix this before it eats up all memory and my willingness
to use BT?

Thanks.

Memory Leak is Microsofts;
I went to Control Panel, then Administrative Tools, then Services. Once
at Services, I found the service with a display name of "Bluetooth
Service". I selected the "Bluetooth Service" and went to properties.
Here it will let you disable the service. After I disabled the service,
the "btwdins.exe" process stopped running and the memory problem went
away.

After disabling this service I was still able to use my Bluetooth mouse
through the IOGear adapter just as before. I wonder if the Windows
Bluetooth Service - "btwdins.exe" was conflicting with the IOGear
Bluetooth software.
Probably relates to anything Bluetooth.
Best,
Treeman

It worked! Must have been a conflict, as you suggested. I'll repost your
response on my Smartphoe messageboard.

Thanks.
