Once you open the dictionary portion of this program, it remains forever opened on your computer and you can't ever shut it down. It takes up valuable resources forever. I uninstalled the whole program and then never used the dictionary again. I love this encyclopedia except tor this one thing.
It is a wonderful product and I like that it installs and you don't have to use the disk. It gives me a quick reference for research of my books when I don't have access to the internet. The only problem I have is that the print on it is too light to read at times if the light hits my computer screen just right.
It has great media options, and you can watch the First mand land on the moon, different landscapes on film, and many other things.
I would recommend this for people with kids, it is a great tool for learning.
I had problems with my Britannica order that customers may anticipate. The first version I received came in a 2006 Edition box and jewel case, but the CD's were 2005 Edition. The replacement (which Amazon did promptly) had the correct CD's but there was no serial number on the jewel case or packaging (you are asked for it when you install). As a lark, I put in 16 numbers at random and it accepted it without a problem. Still, can you imagine such incompetence from an encylopedia company?
