Category:Other
Type:Other

Summary



There is no virus by this name.

However, files with the .SHS or .SHB extension can be used as trojans within Windows. If you receive a file with the .SHS or .SHB extension via web or e-mail, do not execute (double-click) it.

Current versions of Windows do not show the file extension "SHS" by default, even if you turn off "Hide known filetypes" setting in Explorer.

To make SHS and some other extensions (such as LNK) visible, remove these keys from registry:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\shellscrap\nevershowext
 HKLM\software\classes\shellscrap\nevershowext
