right click on my computer and get the properties of it (or go to control panel - system [same thing])
go to the hardware tab.  click the device manager button.  find the bluetooth adapter, right click on it, disable it.

or check in bios (run setup upon booting usually f2 or del) and see if you can turn it off there.  It would be better turning it off here than in windows.

Also, what is the make and model of your laptop? The manufacturer might also provide instructions on this.

The one piece with the microsoft disable is that if you ever want to enable it, then you might not remember that you did this and you wont be able to, so if you can do it in bios, do it there.

I'd re-ask the question and in the subject ask how do I programatically disable Bluetooth on machines I don't know have it or not in your language of choice.
