Since you don't tell us anything about your hardware, version/distro of Linux, or what desktop environment you're using (if ANY), no, we can't. Please read the "Question Guidelines" link in my posting signature...we are happy to try to help, but you need to provide details before we can even guess. Help us to help you.

Are you dual booting or have you had windows on this machine before?

Do you mean at the hardware level or once Linux has started?

If hardware level, what is your hardware's make and model?

What is the linux distro and version?

gksudo xed /etc/rc.local and insert rfkill block bluetooth on the line before exit 0.
