Windows 7 - Bluetooth device driver is no longer recognized or device won't start.

Any Bluetooth adapter. I have 8 of them. I am serious.
The problem is that Windows 7 no longer recognizes certain bluetooth adapters and there is no way to repair the Microsoft Bluetooth stack installation. Some adapters will work using 3rd party Bluetooth stacks, but that doesn't resolve the original issue.
Example Adapters: ASUS BT-211 Atheros (USB\VID_0CF3&PID_3000&REV_0200)
