    Be able to know they are actually scrap files by seeing their extension ?

    So basically remove the .reg key that hides their extension? I have seen that on a few sites but thought there may be a app out there that can detect/stop them.

    Thanks,

    Chris

    Most modern antivirus programs have .shs files in their default scanners these days.
