This comment may not be relevant for this forum because it appears to be a TT issue. But, Iím just curious if others experienced this and know of a work-a-round. Home will not autostart for me (running Windows7) when the TT is plugged into the computer unless I set the User Account Setting (UAC) to its lowest setting. Ē Autostart when connected to computerĒ is ticked in Home preferences. Starting Home manually works so itís not a big deal.
I don’t think you can selectively disable UAC at least not easily. I don’t think Home is designed to run under the new security rules under Win7. Turning UAC off completely may not be wise so the easiest thing is to start up Home manually when connecting the TT to the PC.
I would have thought that the less services running in the background of your pc would be a good thing. My pc running xp as well as my lappie running win7 ultimate, both have the absolute minimun background services running.
To autostart, tomtom home loads a service without you even running the program itself. Under win7 click ctrl+alt+del choose 'start task manager' then processes and you may get a shock at what is actually going on.
