Hopper virus infects .VBS files and Word documents, as well as HTML files. VBS/Hopper.A infects other .VBS files by prepending it's code to the original file.
Based on the settings of your F-Secure security product, it will either move the file to the quarantine where it cannot spread or cause harm, or remove it.
Some variants of this virus family also infect HTA and HTT files. Some of them lower the security settings of IE's zones. To ensure that the virus works on all platforms, when infecting VBS and DOC files, it comments out the HTML-specific part of itself. It infects documents when closes them.
Some variants of VBS/Hopper are able to infect Excel files as well.
