SP Pro performs all necessary operations including cleaning up the Dragon/KB/VC/SS+ ghost icons with one single Hotkey (Ctrl+Alt+Down). If speech is still available you can also use a voice command. 

 

No need to create any scripts. However cleaning up the ghost icons will only work of course if you have the "Always show icons in the notification area" set to On. Which is recommended anyway if you want to see what's going on on your computer.

 

Here's an example of quickly restarting Dragon + VC.

With respect to SP Pro, does the process close the user profile or simply kill the process?  I don't want the user profile to be damaged, and so I prefer closing and not saving to minimize the chance of damage to the profile.

Rapp,

 

The Dragon and VC (+KB + SS+) Restart utility kills these processes, cleans up orphan icons and (optionally) relaunches these add-ons. It's mostly meant if Dragon has become unresponsive/unstable and voice commands don't work anymore. In these cases you probably don't want to save your user profile anyway  

 

You can also use the tool if you are in a lazy mood ;-). If none of the above add-ons are currently running it will restart just Dragon (so it's not a condition to have these add-ons installed in order to run the utility).

 

The user can choose one of the following combinations: Dragon + VC Restart or Dragon + KB + SS+ Restart

I could combine all into one but that wouldn't make much sense since those who use VC usually don't use SS+ and combining VC with KB is not always a good idea.
