I have the same problem on Win 8.1. Had it right from the start. I had a poke around the registry, and if there's anyone who DOES NOT have this recurring tutorial problem with the Sound Blaster Cinema 2 software, could you have a look in your registry (RUN -> regedit.exe) under "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Creative Tech\Sound Blaster Cinema 2" and let us know if there are any keys in there that refer to the tutorial or some kind of 'init' etc? Also, might be worth checking in "%appdata%\Local\Creative\Sound Blaster Cinema 2" for any config files (you can paste that directly into your File Explorer). I only have the "profile\custom.xml" with my custom profile settings.
