Windows 7 is closing to end of support, but I still can't find any information on what is "Bluewire General Property Sheet" shell extension, and do I need it anywhere? It is preinstalled with Windows 7.

  • How do you know its installed? – Moab Oct 10 at 1:20
  • "It is preinstalled with Windows 7." - No; It actually isn't. – Ramhound Oct 10 at 1:28
  • well, I found it in many places in many installations. Including my machine. Maybe it is a part of some common software, or driver, present in most systems? Try googling it - there will be many listed examples. But no explanation, what it is. I thought about BlueTooth, because of blue, but there is no BT adapter in my system; so it is something else. – Asdf Oct 10 at 2:44
  • @Moab: ShellExView. I am trying to clean the system, from lags in Explorer. – Asdf Oct 10 at 2:47

I looked at the BWContextHandler.dll with a text editor, it is related to Bluetooth, even if you do not have Bluetooth hardware it is part of the original Windows installation files.

I would not worry about it, leave the entry alone.
