Hi! I deleted my calc.exe on my computer and I want to get it back. How can I do that? I'm using Windows 7. :)

Hi! Thank you for the reply. Is there any other way where can I restore my deleted calc.exe? I don't have any other computer, my CD Drive is not working properly and I can't find the Add/Remove programs on windows 7.

    Good, inexpensive wine (not an oxymoron).

Press Winkey+r to open the Run dialog.
Type sfc /scannow and press Enter or click GO.

System File Checker (sfc) will restore any missing or damaged files.

If for some reason that doesn't work, install Shadow Explorer. That will give you access to files backed up via Volume Shadow Copy Service. Browse to calc.exe (in Windows\system32) then copy it back to C:\Windows\system32.

You're welcome. Which method did you use to fix it?

I used the Shadow Explorer. I can't use sfc /scannow method. Maybe Shadow Explorer will be useful to me someday if I deleted some of important files. Thanks for the help again :)
