Overview

Homework Essentials Plus is a software program developed by Encyclopaedia Britannica. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The setup package generally installs about 44 files. Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows Vista (SP2) and Windows 7 (SP1). While about 75% of users of Homework Essentials Plus come from the United States, it is also popular in Canada.
