    A few days ago I began to receive the above noted error message. The system locked up, more or less, until this message would appear after about 15 minutes.

    I have a Dell XPS M1530 with Windows Vista Business, SP2. I do not use bluetooth connectivity between my laptop and external devices.

    To resolve this error, I did the following:
    1. Start --> Programs --> Dell Quickset --> Radio Control Options
    2. Click "Advanced Settings" button
    3. Click "Radio Control Options" Tab
    4. Unselect "Bluetooth"
    5. OK --> OK
    6. Click Bluetooth Taskbar Icon --> Disable Bluetooth Devices
    I hope this helps because I could not find anything on the Internet with this solution. Hours on the phone with Dell proved, unsurprisingly, to be a waste of time.
