Here is a direct link to the official Broadcom Bluetooth Software Download page for what appears to be a universal Windows 7 compatable driver all for their Bluetooth devices... integrated & otherwise.
Not sure which actual version it is though... sorry!

Broadcom Driver for HP Bluetooth Adapter - HP Business Support Center
Downloaded and installed the above by extracting sp45987.exe download using Winrar then going under the Win32 folder and dbl click on Inst.exe to install. Reason you have to do this is the SetupBtwDownloadSE.exe installer from Broadcom needs to be able to recognize that the Bluetooth adapter is present and turned on...
Installing bluetooth by HP 18.104.22.16800 will require a reboot following install...
Following reboot, dbl click the SetupBtwDownloadSE.exe downloaded from Broadcom. The Broadcom Software Download gui will progress thru until it eventually errors out "This software is not for this system, contact Dell for support.". Close the error box and the dowload gui. Now uninstall the bluetooth by HP software which will require another reboot...
Browse to where the Broadcom installer dumped the setup files for bluetooth... On my system it is under c:\Users\somms\AppData\Local\Temp\BluetoothBTW in bold will be diff for your system...
Now you can upgrade and install the latest WIDCOMM Bluetooth Software v22.214.171.124 by dbl clicking on Inst.exe under BTW_6.2.1.0100\win32\ from the Temp folder!
