      An SHS file is a Microsoft Scrap Object file. These types of files are executable and can contain a wide variety of objects. The scrap object (SHS) extension does not appear in Windows Explorer even if all file extensions are displayed. Upon executing this worm, your system is modified in many different ways:

      SCANREG.VBS, VBASET.OLB AND MSINFO16.TLB are dropped into the Windows system directory.
      The registry key

      HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Windows/
      CurrentVersion/RunServices/ScanReg

      is added to run the SCANREG.VBS file upon startup.
      LIFE_STAGES.TXT.SHS is dropped into the Windows directory.
      Go to http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/fix.vbs.stages.html
      and follow instructions.
      hope this helped

      vbs is visual basic script… executing one of these, means infecting your computer with a virus or worm. Ultimately you would need to make sure that your anti virus file definitions are up to date and that you have going through the procudures for removing the infection as the previous posted suggested.
