Stop Broadcom Stack Displaying Browser

One of the features of the Broadcom stack is that when you attempt to connect to a virtual COM port it will show the user the Bluetooth Manager and ask them to select a paired device to connect to.

Create a DWORD value named BTBrowserEnabled and set the value to 0. If you want to re-enable this feature you can reset the value to 1.
