I installed Windows 7 ( 32 bit ) via Boot Camp 4.0 on my iMac ( Mid 2007, 24" model  iMac 7,2 ) because I needed it for 2 Windows-only programs that I need.


After the Windows install, my Bluetooth keyboard and trackpad both worked ( minus the scroll and right click function on the trackpack ), but after I installed the Boot Camp support software, I can't get them to work. When I search for Buetooth devices within Windows, they show up but they don't want to connect..they're in a constant state of 'trying to connect with Buetooth keyboard' . Am I doing something wrong here ? I really wish I didn't need Windows..I can't stand the pain of using it. Any help would be appreciated.

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4), Bluetooth peripherals quit working
