Hide to System Tray/Taskbar

When you close the VirtualShield Windows application it will continue running in the background. To open it again, click the red/green shield icon in your System Tray (next to your clock).
If you don't see this icon, press the up-arrow (^) next to your clock to Show hidden icons.

To exit the app entirely, right-click this icon and select 'Exit VirtualShield' from the pop-up menu.

This allows VirtualShield to remain running at all times in order to keep your system protected. You can also choose to disable this option, and clicking the X button will exit the software instead.

Note: This feature is entirely optional and can be enabled or disabled at any time.
