I downloaded Skype and after running it, it says Bluetooth Atheros wants to access Skype. Why?

What device are you using - PC; Mobile; or maybe aSmartphone? – Little Helper Sep 17 '11 at 14:05
@Robrok: PC, as it has the Windows tag and Atheros is a PC company afaik. – Tom Wijsman Sep 17 '11 at 14:19

Your Bluetooth software has probably a function that allows you to accept/deny calls if you have a device that supports that; so, it just asks for confirmation in advance to allow devices that can connect to your computer to accept or deny calls.
