FIX: Microsoft XML 3.0 Service Pack 1 Registry Changes

Symptoms
With Microsoft XML (MSXML) 3.0 (Msxml3.dll, version 8.0.7820), the following are the values for the specific registry keys:
Registry key "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Microsoft.XMLParser.1.0" shows the default name as "XML Parser0".

Registry key "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Msxml2.FreeThreadedDOMDocument.3.0" shows the default name as "Free Threaded XML DOM Document30".
Resolution
The above registry information has been changed in MSXML 3.0 Service Pack 1 (SP1) to coincide with the MSXML 3.0 SP1 object default name and ProgId naming conventions.
Registry key "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Microsoft.XMLParser.1.0" shows the default name as "XML Parser".

Registry key "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Msxml2.FreeThreadedDOMDocument.3.0" shows the default name as "Free Threaded XML DOM Document 3.0".
