I need to know how to enable bluetooth on windows 7 ulitmate. When i open the control panel and type in "bluetooth" nothing comes up  even though it should come up with options for it. Yes i check my computer and I have WIDCOMM Bluetooth software installedon it. But i cannot acess bluetooth options anywhere, i deleted the system tray icon so i can't see it there either. What should i do to enable my bluetooth then?

Open your Device Manager and find the Bluetooth device. It may be marked with a yellow warning triangle if a driver is not installed. Right click on the device, and select 'Update Driver Software'. This should find and install the driver for you.

It should also be noted that several laptops "offer" a method of turning on / off the Bluetooth device (aka radio.) either in the BIOS or via a "button."  The Bluetooth device must be active before the Windows Device Manager can find it.
