Windows XP SP2 brings Windows XP users the latest security updates and innovations from Microsoft. A significant aspect of the XP SP2 release involves locking down the Local Machine zone to help prevent the running of malicious scripts and ActiveX controls and fortifying against harmful web downloads. The Internet Explorer browser update includes new user controls and user interfaces specifically designed to help prevent malicious ActiveX controls and spyware from running on end users systems without their knowledge and consent. While this is a secure configuration, it does alter the end user experience and could potentially prevent even authorized applications from working properly. The Prizm Viewer Update for XP SP2 minimizes the impact to end users for the deployment of Windows XP SP2 by pre-configuring html and executables used by the Prizm Viewer as approved.
The Prizm Viewer allows users to view, manipulate, annotate and print mixed batches of document images and PDF files, while specifically controlling configuration and toolbar display, as well as saving and printing options. A Microsoft Windows application that extends the capabilities of Internet Explorer and Netscape browsers, the Prizm Viewer allows corporate, academic and government organizations worldwide to offer secure web-based access to their critical document image management systems.
