Bluetooth Support Service

The Bluetooth Support Service (bthserv) supports the discovery and association of remote Bluetooth devices. Stopping or disabling this service may cause installed Bluetooth devices to fail to operate properly and prevent new devices from being discovered or associated. If Bluetooth devices are not used with the computer, this service can be disabled.

This service is installed by default and its startup type is Manual. When the Bluetooth Support Service is started in its default configuration, it logs on by using the Local Service account.

The Bluetooth Support Service is dependent upon the following system components:

  • Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
  • DCOM Server Process Launcher
  • RPC Endpoint Mapper
