    I am using XP Pro SP3. I have Zone Labs Firewall, Avira AV, Spyware
    Blaster, and
    Malwarebytes installed and running on my system.

    My problem is I am trying to install the TomTom Home program on my system to
    use with my GPS. For the purpose of the installation, I have disabled the
    aforementioned programs.
    I do not have the CD but I have downloaded the program from the TomTom Home
    site. When I double click the program icon to install it, I get the run
    dialog box but when I click on the run option, nothing happens. I have
    rebooted and tried the same process again and also tried to install the
    program in safe mode, to no avail. I have other programs in my downloads
    file and when I click on those run options, it initiates the setup. Just
    can not get the TomTom Home program to run and setup. Hope someone will
    have an idea of what I need to do to resolve this. Thanks in advance...Ron

    You need to install .net from Windows Update on your computer. IIRC,
    v1.1 should do it.

    Andy...Thanks for the response. I checked Windows Update and I see nothing
    like IIRC, v1.1.
    I saw two things that I did not install and they were Microsoft.NET
    Framework version 1.1 and
    Microsoft.NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1. Don't know if this is the item
    your were talking about but I went ahead and installed both of them. No
    change in the install of TT Home.
    If this is not what you were talking about, please give me an idiot lesson
    as to where I can find it in the Updates. Thanks...Ron

    Good one!

    Ron, try re-downloading Home again, you may have a corrupt version. It is
    not unknown from TomTom

    Be prepared for a corrupted map down load the first time you run it as
    well, been getting that, when ever I do a fresh install, for over 2
    years

    Connect yout tomtom with usb and it wil install automaticly.
    Your tomtom wil will try to connect with tomtom home service, then accept
    it.
    You can not install tomtomhome manualy!

    4 machines with various OS and SP).....

    Download the latest version from www.tomtom.com/home, then make sure
    there is no tomfoolery still running in the background (from earlier
    install attempts). Then it should install ok. NB the file size should be
    19,824 Kb and have properties showing ver 2.7.0.1785. It can be a *** to
    install, It took me 3 attempts before it installed and ran properly
