Notes about the SHS file extension:



Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.

The SHS file type is primarily associated with 'Shell Scrap Object File' by Microsoft Corporation. The Shell Scrap Object is part of the Microsoft embed objects inside objects philosophy. Basically, what happens is that the shell script is wrapped around an object and the .SHS extension (which normally can't be seen even with extensions turned on) is added to the file. An .SHS file is really potentially quite dangerous because it can have anything executable in it along with a vast collection of dangerous script code in the wrapper. At least one worm uses the Shell Script object. Note: This file type can become infected and should be carefully scanned if someone sends you a file with this extension.
