Anyone have any ideas?


I just updated my system software and now my bluetooth preferences are showing 2 new serial ports (modem) that I can NOT erase. Everytime I try, they keep on returning within in an hour or on reboot.


On top of that, the box that says "Allow Bluetooth devices to wake this computer" is checked and is grayed out, meaning I can't change it.


This was not the case before the update.


I'm not running any software that would request bluetooth use.


Please help!!



MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3)
