Is there way to remove or hide the VS widget from the desktop? Just want to keep my desktop clean since I have icon in my system tray already. I have the Pro version.

Sorry. Found the option to hide the widget.
You found it. Good.

For those who still don't know, right click on the icon and select "Hide Desktop Shield". (y) Additionally, users may also wish to go to Settings > Basic > disable "Enable balloon notification and user prompts", and in UI Tweaks > disable "Display simple user and mini prompts" if you previously enabled it.

Please note: Part of the above answer was incorrect. It should read:

Additionally, users may also wish to go to Settings > Basic > disable "Deny by Default - Uncheck to show prompt instead of balloon", and in UI Tweaks > disable "Display simple user and mini prompts" if you previously enabled it. This will give you only the prompt with the VoodooAI and Whitelist Cloud verdict regarding the file and not the useless blinking balloon notifiction that usually precedes it.

IMO the simple mini and user prompts option is also worthless.

Yeah. Ur information is quite useful. Maybe other new users might need this formation when doing a forum search.

BTW. Past voodooshield version used to use VirusTotal as part of the service. I don't see it as it being use as main features for the blacklist anti-virus.

Dan could answer this better... fwiw I think that as Dan developed WLC and VoodooAi, VS/CL relies less (or stopped relying on VT) although the interface offers Get a Second Opinion and that will open browser to VT perhaps sending at least the hash. That's what I think / suspect is happening.
