Re: tomtom page on startup???

Are you talking about Home 2 or MyTomTom (the web based app) that you are using?

Okay, let me rephrase..

 

Are you using Home 2 on your computer and, if so, go into Preferences, General, and UNCHECK the choice to start when the computer is turned on.

It is the same if you are using MyTomTom, go to settings / general and untick the automatic startup of MyTomTom

Should be when you click the desktop icon for MyTomTom.

I finally managed to find this option on the TomTom icon hidden in the bottom right toolbar for Xp.  None on the other icons seem to have the Settings option.  At least I've managed to get rid of this annoyance!

Re: tomtom page on startup???

I am having the same exact problem with TomTom's homepage. I DI D NOT ASK FOR IT TO TAKE OVER MY BROWSER. I have my homepage and Google and I want to keep it that way, go away TomTom!!!
