Encyclopaedia Universalis 2013


Encyclopaedia Universalis 2013 is a software program developed by Encyclopaedia Universalis. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. It adds a Browser Helper Object (BHO) to Internet Explorer. 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 primary executable is named universalis2013.exe. The setup package generally installs about 46 files and is usually about 429.45 MB (450,309,254 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 10. While about 65% of users of Encyclopaedia Universalis 2013 come from France, it is also popular in DZ and the United States.
