Our View Cart code calls some programming into your page which operates the nice, overlay-style cart that appears "inside" your page. Without that code in your page, the cart would appear in a popup window/tab. If you want to use our overlay-style cart, you must have at least one block of View Cart code on every page which has any number of Add to Cart buttons (you don't need a View Cart for every Add to Cart appearing on the same page together).
If you don't want to give the buyer any way to view their cart without adding an item to it, you can just delete the actual button-link portion of the View Cart code (the first half, from <a href=... to </a>) while keeping the scripting portion of the code (the last half, from the first <script... to the last </script>) in your pages' source code.
However, we do not recommend removing the View Cart button, as it may adversely affect your conversion rate. A buyer may have added some item(s) to their cart and continued shopping around your site, then at some point they may be ready to place their order but cannot find a way to get back to their cart without adding an item they don't want to buy. You can't expect everyone to be smart enough to realize they can add an item and then remove it, so in this situation they will often just leave your site without placing any order at all. This is why online shopping sites typically have a View Cart button or link placed in an easy-to-find location that is consistent from page to page throughout the same site.
