When you connect to the computer, does Windows 'see' the unit as a removable drive? If so, try this:
1. Make an Explorer, not home, backup of the unit's contents. See here:
https://www.tomtomforums.com/t17864-how-backup-contents-your-unit-computer-how-restore.html

2. Then delete all the loose files in the root of the unit, NO folders or their contents.

3. Connect to Home and install the application offered.

4. Disconnect properly from Home using the Device disconnect icon.
 
See the articles in the "articles" forum section for further advice.
