How to Use Stealth Mode

In Stealth Mode, the Universal Shield installation becomes invisible to all users-the desktop shortcut, Start menu shortcut, and Program Files folder for Universal Shield all become hidden. You must use the hot key functions of Universal Shield to access the program in this mode (see "How to Set Hot Keys" and "Set Hot Keys").

To use Stealth Mode:

  1. Click Security > Stealth Mode. Automatically, Universal Shield protects its own processes and ENABLES protection. (If you do not have any hot keys set up, a message box opens and prompts you to set up hot keys. You cannot use this feature without setting up hot keys.)
  2. Click Options, and turn on Protect After Exit and Protect On Windows Start. These will provide protection after you close Universal Shield and immediately on starting Windows if you reboot.
  3. Close Universal Shield (click File > Exit).
  4. You can turn off Stealth Mode by running Universal Shield (using hot keys) and clicking Security > Stealth Mode. For more information, see "Stealth Mode".
