View Full Version : My windows calculator got deleted.

I ran disk cleanup and defragmenter, because I heard you were supposed to do that every few months or so. But after I ran them, my windows calculator got deleted somehow. I searched for it and everything, but it's not there. I need a calculator for bonus whoring. Is there a place I can download it?

I went to download.com and found a program called Beautiful Calculator, but the buttons are too small and it doesn't have a decimal button (WTF?).

there's an enhanced calculator from microsoft themself. some other stuff you may want too.

you could try looking in windows\system32\dllcache though, calc.exe might be there too.

The question is whether the executable got deleted, or just the shortcut. Most likely it's the shortcut. calc.exe is the executable. It should be in C:\Windows\System32 (on an XP system, anyway). If it's still there, you just need to create a new shortcut in your start menu or desktop. If the executable is gone, the simplest thing to do is just to copy it from another computer. It's a small file (112Kb) so it will fit on a floppy or USB key.
