My Bluetooth Places has disappeared

Hi. I'm a Windows XP SP1 user and I used to have no problem using Bluetooth. I hadn't used it in a while, though, and when I tried to connect my phone to my laptop today, for some reason, I couldn't access My Bluetooth Places. When I tried to explore it, I got the error "path does not exist or is not a directory."

I don't really know what could have happened there. Does anyone know how to recover My Bluetooth Places? I don't think I can explore my bluetooth devices without it, and I'm on the verge of panicking.

I'd really appreciate any help you can give.

Hope this is in the right forum.

Thank you!
