Calibre Viewer problem

Hello,
I recently downloaded calibre into my new pc. I also exported all the books that I had in my old pc into my new one. However, the reader in the new pc seems to be different. It shows less features and only parts of the full page. How can I fix this?

This is what it looks like :

This is what I have in my old pc:

I can't open all my books in the new viewer, I get the following error on at least 3 different books:

Quote:
calibre, version 4.0.0
ERROR: Loading book failed: Failed to open the book at D:\Calibre\[WIP Spuffy]\pfeifferpack\Eye of Eleos (762)\Eye of Eleos - pfeifferpack.epub. Click "Show details" for more info.

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\viewer\ui.py", line 248, in _load_ebook_worker
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\viewer\convert_book.py", line 162, in prepare_book
WindowsError: [Error 5] Adgang n�gtet
Also, when I open a book it adds a cover I haven't asked for.

@Tanjamuse: that is an access denied error, check the permissions on your calibre cache folder and/or temporarily disable your antivirus.

How do I do that on a single library because in other libraries it works fine?

Also, can you add something where it shows the cover created by the Generate Cover plugin instead of an auto-created by Calibre?

All libraries share the same cache folder, so if it is not working for one particular library then either there is something special about the book sin that library or its an antivirus.

And no, I'm afraid cover generation is not going to be via a plugin. Use the embed metadata tool to embed the plugin covers in the book files, then the viewer will use them instead of generating its own

I've added the entire Calibre folder (where all my books are) to the exception-list in Avira.

Every folder is write-protected, including the ones that I can view just fine.

I still get the error.

Could it have something to do with the fact that there might be images in?

I am also unable to open any of my e-books in Calibre with the new update, and am getting the same message.
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\viewer\ui.py", line 248, in _load_ebook_worker
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\viewer\convert_book.py", line 162, in prepare_book
WindowsError: [Error 5] Access is denied
I am about to go back to the old version, because I expect a program I install to continue working properly and not randomly stop because of a new update that apparently requires to deactivate my anti-virus if I want to read stories on my computer.

(another clue supplied )
What FORMAT is in your Library for a book that fails? (The viewer does an on the fly convert to EPUB for some formats)
