  1. This springs up a question, that if you don’t have any bluetooth software for your mobile phones are you still at risk? (seems unlikely) but why doesn’t the windows update look more closely at your system to see if you’re really at risk from this alert. I don’t think that many people are but am prepared to be corrected on this one…
