Have installed Dragon Preferred v.10 All goes well, I save user files,etc.but when i close PC, "Dragon Daemon" comes up and wants to save material. Then it freezes and i am told i will lose all info. when i close down.
According to Nuance Tech. Daemon is integral part of Dragon, but shouldn't appear. A tchnician sent me a "cure" which doesn't work -see below. Have other people had this problem? It is niggling me for I've used Dragon various versions for years.

Thank you for contacting Nuance Technical Support regarding Dragon NaturallySpeaking 10.0 Preferred

When i get to 9. Click "OK" to apply...but select restart later " I don't get this option to restart later. When I go into next xztep of opening SYSTEM on Control panel, it doesn't open.
Any suggestions, please? Nuance have still not come back to me after 4 days! and my Dragon is uninstalled. Brian
