The solution is inactivation of DEP for just the "natspeak.exe" application. Here are the steps:
1. Open your START Menu and click "Help and Support"
2. SEARCH HELP type DEP
3. Click "Change Data Execution Prevention settings"
4. Following the Windows Help instructions..."Click to Open System" and complete Step 2. through Step 6.
5. In Step 5, you'll browse to the "natspeak.exe" file located in the Windows 7 Program Files folder.
6. After you have added "natspeak.exe" as an exception, be sure you check the box in front of this application to activate the DEP exception for Dragon Naturally Speaking. If you leave this box unchecked, DEP will continue to block your application from starting.
7. Restart your computer. You are ready to launch and/or install the Dragon Naturally Speaking software. If Dragon Naturally Speaking is still installed, it will now launch without further difficulty. You DO NOT have to uninstall and reinstall the software after you set this DEP exception, because DEP does not interfer with proper installation (only the launch of the application).
