Disable or Restrict Bluetooth Devices via GPO

By default, Windows XP SP2 installs Bluetooth wireless device support when you install Windows XP SP2 to a computer. After installation, if a Bluetooth wireless device or radio is detected, Device Manager will install the driver for the Bluetooth device.

To remove Bluetooth wireless device support on Client, follow these steps:

Open Device Manager.
Expand Bluetooth Radios.

Right-click each device listed under Bluetooth Radios, click Uninstall, and then click OK.
Close Device Manager, and then click OK.
In Windows Explorer, open the C:\Windows\Inf folder.
Rename the Bth.inf file to Bth.inf.old.
Rename the Bth.pnf file to Bth.pnf.old.
Restart Windows XP SP2.
