If it helps anyone I received an idea which I tried and it worked great: Open the Blackberry Desktop Manager, right click and select troubleshoot, then choose compatibility mode. Hey Presto Blackberry Desktop Manager ran in what might be Vista mode. I couldn’t see what the point of that would be until I restarted the computer and when I opened the Blackberry Desktop Manager, apart from the usual options to synchronise, there was a another icon in the Blackberry Desktop Manager which had not appeared before – to connect to the internet using the phone as a modem. First I was told I had to configure it. I clicked on the “Configure” button in the Blackberry Desktop manager and configured it then I clicked on Connect and it did it perfectly via USB. When I clicked on disconnect (all in the Blackberry desktop manager) and unplugged the USB it then synced the Outlook info via Bluetooth. So it all works through the Blackberry Desktop manager.

Interesting to read that other people have the same problema I have. I mean, I can use Blacyberry Bold as an IP modem via Blackberry Desktop Manager. The icon is there. The problem is, after using it for some minutes, it clashes my computer and I have to restart the system. It happens everytime. So, I believe that there is some incompatibility with Blackberry Desktop Manager 5.0.1 and Windows 7 - when we are using Bold as an IP Modem.
