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.

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.
