Default C# Internet Explorer DOM using ObjectFromLresult.

Howdo, I've been working on this for a couple of days, I did a VB.NET example of this on a forum a few years ago, but C# presented me with a new challenge & it took a while to figure out.

The Idea is to get hold of an open instance of IE ( IE7 in this case ) & grab hold of it's IHTMLDocument2 Interface, giving the ability to manipulate that external Internet Explorer window / grab it's url address, it's html, make it navigate elsewhere, etc...

when this code is added to a project, you must make a reference to Microsoft.mshtml
Code:
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Diagnostics;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Runtime.InteropServices;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using mshtml;

namespace HookBrowser
{
    public partial class Form1 : Form
    {
        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }

        #region API CALLS

        [DllImport("user32.dll", EntryPoint = "GetClassNameA")]
        public static extern int GetClassName(IntPtr hwnd, StringBuilder lpClassName, int nMaxCount);

        /*delegate to handle EnumChildWindows*/
        public delegate int EnumProc(IntPtr hWnd, ref IntPtr lParam);

        [DllImport("user32.dll")]
        public static extern int EnumChildWindows(IntPtr hWndParent, EnumProc lpEnumFunc, ref  IntPtr lParam);
        [DllImport("user32.dll", EntryPoint = "RegisterWindowMessageA")]
        public static extern int RegisterWindowMessage(string lpString);
        [DllImport("user32.dll", EntryPoint = "SendMessageTimeoutA")]
        public static extern int SendMessageTimeout(IntPtr hwnd, int msg, int wParam, int lParam, int fuFlags, int uTimeout, out int lpdwResult);
        [DllImport("OLEACC.dll")]
        public static extern int ObjectFromLresult(int lResult, ref Guid riid, int wParam, ref IHTMLDocument2 ppvObject);
        public const int SMTO_ABORTIFHUNG = 0x2;
        public Guid IID_IHTMLDocument = new Guid("626FC520-A41E-11CF-A731-00A0C9082637");

        #endregion

        public IHTMLDocument2 document;

        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            document = documentFromDOM();
            /// check that we have hold of the IHTMLDocument2...
            if (!(bool)(document == null))
            {
                this.Text = document.url;
            }
        }

        private IHTMLDocument2 documentFromDOM()
        {
            Process[] processes = Process.GetProcessesByName("iexplore");
            if (processes.Length > 0)
            {
                IntPtr hWnd = processes[0].MainWindowHandle;
                int lngMsg = 0;
                int lRes;

                EnumProc proc = new EnumProc(EnumWindows);
