All the data shown on the LCD is delivered over USB to Neato Control.
Neato's do not work with the LCD disconnected, so how much the LCD can be defective and the system still work is not clear. Some units have been run with the LCD blank. Other threads detail LCD replacement.
The small buttons on the LCD panel are coupled together with resistors to combine signals on one wire with different voltages for each button, so disconnecting will probably deliver an out of range voltage rejected by the software.

See the Neato Programming manual link top of main forum page, and in Mods & Repairs list. Neato supports a text command language over USB usable with a terminal emulator such as Tera term, hyperterminal etc., with a driver from the Neato website. All user set parameters covered. Look through the commands. The Neato Control Program here supplies a graphical interface to the text commands, fancy features, some parameters displayed automatically. Text commands can also be issued within Neato Control.

New user here and am trying to install this program on my PC but my anti virus scanner warned that this program contains an Adware. I downloaded this from the link in the first post. Did that latest version got contaminated somehow?

Look for links in this thread to older versions of the program and see if they also get flagged for adware. Also see what specific adware security software identifies. Try the free Spybot program on it. This has never happend to this program before.
