    I am unable to read ebooks that are created with
    EBookPaper (and I understand other ebooks are also a
    problem) after installing SP2. The ebook opens, but will
    not go beyond the first page, and the error received is

    Good day,

    We were faced with the same issue you guys are faced with. We are
    delphi programmers and we use IE as a GUI. The moment we installed
    SP2 our software
    would not work anymore. In the component that we use for IE, we have
    the onNavigateBefore2 event, where we would catch the url. After
    debugging this we realize that the "URL" parameter that is passed to
    this event did change after the install of SP2. It had a prefix of
    "res://shdoclc/syntax.htm". Thereby our string compare did not work

    So we contacted ms and we got some good support back.

    Their answer was the following...

    Create a key in your registry..

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Security\Adv
    AddrBar Spoof Detection

    You may need to create the "Adv AddrBar Spoof Detection" KEY under the
    Security key. And then add the value field (DWord):

    Name : Enable
    Value : 0(zero)

    This fixed the issue right away for us, we only restarted the app...we
    didn't reboot.

    The mentioned to us that this is a security issue and that we should
    adjust our code for the future releases.

    Hope this helps
