Uninstall Driver thats already been uninstalled

Hope some one can help me.
I am trying to hook up a Blackberry 88** to a Dell XP SP3 laptop with bluetooth, the user needs to offload dat. In order for the BlackBerry to connect to the laptop i must use the Microsoft bluetooth drive and not the Dell driver(as stated by blackberry).
I uninstalled the Dell BT driver but the device remains in the Device manager. If i right click on the Device and uninstall it, it comes right back. XP will not let me load the XP BT driver because it sees the Dell BT driver. If i delete the Dell BT driver file a .sys file XP throws up an error asking for the file. Went through the registry and deleted all references to the .sys file but i still have the problem.
I have found documents online that same you must restore the OEM**.inf file in windows/inf. But you must find the right OEM**.inf driver by referencing the inf the Dell driver is using. When i look at the Dell driver in device manager it is referencing a .sys file in a different folder no inf. So i am stuck.
Using a usb cable will not work, boken on the phone.
