I see that you have sent me a PM on this subject but it was similarly short and sweet. It would be helpful for you to expand fully on what you are are trying to do and why, and what you have already tried in order to resolve your problem.
I will not be responding to the PM, so that others can see and contribute to the thread.

This also happened to me. I tried to pair my curve 8530 with a bluetooth adapter on my win7 64bit machine. but got a message saying it could not install the bluetooth peripheral driver. and now my bluetooth headset can no longer connect to my phone.

Actually this is how I fixed this issue (thanks to Ghostie3599).
PREAMBLE: Bear in mind this is a Research In Motion issue, and not a Microsoft issue. The Blackberry software should have the appropriate .INF files that allow Windows to install the correct device drivers for all detected Bluetooth Peripherals.
In my case, following these steps gave Windows vista the hint that the other Bluetooth Peripheral Device would work with the same driver. So after doing these steps for the first Bluetooth Peripheral Device, I got both devices working OK. However, if you still have the second Bluetooth Peripheral Device being listed with the yellow icon (i.e.: missing drivers), try repeating these steps to see if it works. If it doesn't, then the Bluetooth Peripheral Device might be something else (i.e.: not a virtual COM port).
Hope this helps!

Brilliant, thanks Andre, that worked for me. Ever since my first Blackberry curve I have not managed to get the phone to communicate via bluetooth to my computer, now it's working fine. Still have absolutely no idea what a virtual serial port is or what it it does, but who cares if it works!
The options appeared a little differently for me, perhaps because I am using Win7, so have adapted your instructions slightly for anyone-one else who wants to try.
*On step 6 when RIM Virtual Serial Ports was selected I was given 2 choices of model, I chose what was listed as being the most current which was RIM Virtual Serial Port v2 Version:188.8.131.52 [24/11/2008]. When I clicked on Next a message appeared warning me that updating this driver may stop the device from working but as it wasn't working anyway I ignored it (working on the assumption false or not that I could remove and install the device again).
I did have to repeat the procedure again for the second peripheral device.
Many thanks Andre
