How open files "shs" in Windows 7

The SHS files or also known as Office clippings, are files that were used in Windows XP and earlier systems. This type of files started to be used to introduce viruses into computers, for this reason, Microsoft finished using these files in the newer versions of Windows.

If you want to open a shs file on Windows Vista or later, you can follow these steps: 

Copy the shscrap.dll file from a machine with Windows XP. Yo can find this file in "C:\Windows\System32". You should copy it to the same path in the machine with Windows 7. If the machine is 64 bits, you should copy the file to "C:\Windows\SysWOW64".

Create a ".reg" and copy the following text:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.shs]
@="ShellScrap"
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ShellScrap]
@="Scrap object"
"NeverShowExt"=""

Execute the "*.reg" on the computer and then you can open files "SHS"

If the user needs to open shs documents and he isn't computer administrator, he'll need write permissions on the strings where our script going to write. Once the user has permissions, we can run the *.reg file with the user account.
