Windows Calculator App = numbers.exe process?

Q: Windows Calculator App = numbers.exe process?

Hi all,

New here, so I'm not sure if this is the correct forum to post this(if it isn't, admins please move it to the correct forum, thanks!). I'm currently running Windows 8.1 and recently I took a look at my Resource Monitor and noticed a process called numbers.exe with the description "Numbers". It showed it as running in the background but in a suspended state.

As I've never seen that process before, I decided to search it up and it came up with some results related to a trojan/rootkit. But this trojan/rootkit was namely referred to as <random numbers>.exe (for example: 123456789.exe); nothing indicating specifically the process "numbers.exe". I did a bit of digging in the associated handles and noticed that some of the files were related to the default Windows Calculator App, which I have currently pinned to my Start. When I unpinned it from the Start the process was gone.....so I'm assuming it is the process for the calculator. But because of a trojan incident I had a few years back, I'm a bit paranoid based of the searches that popped up for numbers.exe.

So I was wondering if anyone knows if this "numbers.exe" is a legitimate process? Does anyone else who also has the default calculator pinned to their start have this process running as "suspended"?

Anyone help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Preferred Solution: Windows Calculator App = numbers.exe process?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey guys. I've got a process that I absolutely cannot kill and it's slowly taking away the executables I can run.

The process is called 3252348497:2920883518.exe. I've never seen a process with a colon.

It shows up whether I'm in regular boot, safe mode and safe mode with command prompt.

After having a really nice graphically pleasing calculator in Windows 8.1, I must say that the "stripped down" version in Windows 10 leaves lots to be desired.  Is there a app in the Windows Store that comes close to offering a Calculator more in line with the calculator that came with Windows 8.1.  I don't mind paying for one.  Any suggestions.
 
Thanks

A:Windows 10 Calculator

I didn't see one.  If you click on the ugly three lines (misnamed 'hamburger') at upper left, you do find a useful array of conversion types.  But you cannot use the 8.1's calculator (which yes is better), in 10.  When I tried, I got a claim that the dll it needed to run,wasn't available, and it wouldn't tell me WHAT dll, was missing. (I dual boot 8.1 with 10.)
 
Windows 7 calc.exe won't work, either.  XP's version might, but it's so ugly and sparse I didn't want to try it.  The file is in Windows System32, and also in Windows System32 dllcache .
 
Sent feedback via Insider program saying bluntly the calculator in 10 looked like a tombstone and was too big for laptops.

I have a Logitech Office Internet Keyboard.

I used to be able to press the "Calculator" button, and the Windows Calculator would appear.

Now I am receiving the error message:

"calc.exe is not a valid Win32 application."

I am not sure, but this may have started happening after I installed Microsoft Calculator Plus.

Ideally, I would like the ability to access MCP with the button, but if it means going back to the original Calculator, I will do that.

Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

I'm trying to use Windows 7 calculator to help with some software I'm developing that uses complex math functions, along with a healthy dose of 64 bit integer arithmetic. 
I won't get into the irritating fact that now you can't use one mode for both modest math functions and binary (and that you lose the accumulator if you switch modes)...  Okay, so I ended up running two of them and copying and pasting between.  But...
It's 3:00 am and I'm trying to see what a big number, logged in a text file in decimal via a printf %I64u conversion, is in hex.
Whose idea was it to change the damned calculator so that it won't accept a decimal number big enough to fill an unsigned 64 bit word?
Try copying this number and pasting it into the Windows 7 calculator:  17281580835365214242  You'll find it goes "ding" and fails to enter the last digit.  In hex this is:  EFD4823541245822  How do I know this?  Because the Vista calculator does the conversion just fine.
Okay, so let me just make a copy of the Vista calculator so I can run it on my Windows 7 system.  I'm licensed for all these operating systems anyway.  No dice - Microsoft tied the stupid calculator application to the operating system version.  So I have to RDP into my Vista machine just to use the calculator.

I lost orig. calculator from Accessories recently and I think it had to do w/my re-install of WMPlayer...Meanwhile, I went ahead and downloaded the powertoy calculator and have used it a couple of times, and in general, it's not necessary that I have all the features that it has, but more so, I don't think i set it up correctly because to use it, unlike the Powertoy Tweak UI where it aligned to the Programs folder and using mouse key to start, of course, you can scroll and see that it's positioned in it's own folder but the powertoy calculator, I have in MY Docs. folder and created a shortcut, thinking that that would "open" from the desktop without having to hunt it down too much. But instead of opening, it has to install (or in this case, reinstall) and that's the only way you can finally use it. It MAY facilitate this whole inquiry and process of using a calculator, to just go ahead and use my CD for the windows xp to replace or repair lost files +/or drivers, as I'm finishing up typing this post to draw toward that as conclusion. But I'll see what anyone may have to reply if with any suggestions or information in this regard.

Before you do anything with the XP cd, try this.

Open up My Computer from your desktop then open Drive C.

Next click on Windows. Find the System32 folder, open it, scroll through the entries in System32 and find calc.

When you see it, right click on the icon and send a shortcut to your desktop.

If you want to put the shortcut back in Accessories:

I have a column that has numbers in this format: 54321-1234

Now, I want to take off the last 4 numbers, and the dash, from all the numbers in the column, using a formula. So that the output would be: 54321.

I want it so the first 5 numbers stay the same, but the dash and last 4 are gone. Is this possible?

This was asked before by KlausdB:

"I have 4 x HDDs on SATA AHCI (Intel Controller) in Native Mode and 1 x ESATA on Win 7 Pro X64.
I noted that looking in Admin. Tools\Computer Management\Storage (as an example) the 1st HDD (Port 0 in the AHCI BIOS) is showing as "Disk 2" instead of my expectation of


"Disk 1".
Selecting the Drive's Properties correctly shows the "Location 0 (Channel 0, Target 0, Lun 0)".
I also note that the Disk Number allocation in Windows will change randomly after some reboots/startups - going anywhere from "Disk 1" to "Disk 4".  I can force/replicate this


behaviour by removing the ESATA drive.
Is this expected behaviour?
It doesn't appear to create any operating issues at this stage, however, is there a way I can force the Drive to always map to (eg) Device 0 --> Disk 1, Device 1 --> Disk 2,


etc?
Thanks."


 This was answered by Nicholas Li:

"As far as I know, how the disk is plugged physically and the order it is displayed are not related. For a simple example, if a drive is plugged to SATA interface 4 and it is the only disk, it will be displayed as Disk 0. If there is no related issue about

If that works, do this to get the shortcut back into the Accessories folder

Start Windows Explorer and navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\StartMenu\Programs\Accessories. Now in the Right pane you should see the contents of the Accessories folder. Right click in the Right pane and select New>Shortcut. In the first dialog box key in Calc and click on Nect. Now in the next box key in Calculator and click on Finish.

I have three SATA hard drives :
Main system/boot drive , WD Caviar Black 1 TB, connected to the SATA 0 port
A backup drive, identical WD Caviar Black 1 TB, connected to the SATA 1 port
Another dirve, Hitachi 1 TB, connected to the SATA 2 port
When I installed Win 7, only the main drive was connected... and it remains the only drive with active/system/boot partitions.

QUESTION 1.
All three drives reporr correctly in the BIOS, and in the right order, but why is it that only one of the drive (the one on SATA port 1) has a "SATA:" prefix and the others have a "HDD:" prefix ?

QUESTION 2,
Why is it that the assignment of Disk #0, 1, 2 ( as seen in Disk Maanger or DiskPart) does not seem to have nay rhyme or reason?

I would have expected:

- the hardrive connected to SATA port O, to be assigned as Disk 0
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 1, to be assigned as Disk 1
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 2, to be assigned as Disk 2

but instead, I have:

- the hardrive connected to SATA port 2, is assigned as Disk 0
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 0, is assigned as Disk 1
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 1, is assigned as Disk 2

Just curious why that is.

I am assuming there is no way to chagne this. Its not something I would dream of reinstalling Windows 7 to correct ( even if it did correct it).

A:Windows Logon Process system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0x00000080

0xC000021A: STATUS_SYSTEM_PROCESS_TERMINATEDThis occurs when Windows switches into kernel mode and a user-mode subsystem, such as Winlogon or the Client Server Runtime Subsystem (CSRSS), is compromised. Security can no longer be guaranteed. Because Win XP can?t run without Winlogon or CSRSS, this is one of the few situations where the failure of a user-mode service can cause the system to stop responding. This Stop message also can occur as a result of malware infestation or when the computer is restarted after a system administrator has modified permissions so that the SYSTEM account no longer has adequate permissions to access system files and folders.I've never gotten this particular error...but if I did, i would treat it as a malware situation until proven otherwise.Louis

Hi there. I'd suggest first opening the Windows App store and updating the calculator app from there. Then, try these steps: 
1) On Start panel, type in powershell. Then choose Windows PowerShell option from the list.2) In the PowerShell window, type in the following command: 
Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register ?$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml?}
Then hit Enter. 
The above command will re-register all Windows 10 default apps on your computer. Wait for the process to finish and try running your Calculator again. 
 
If that doesn't work, follow it with running SFC or DISM. Here's more info on that: https://www.drivereasy.com/knowledge/windows-10-repair-fix-problems-with-sfc-and-dism/

Hello there, I've noticed just today that I can't open Windows Store nor the Calculator. I saw some people say that they have issues with all Windows Apps in this case, but for me, Photos, Camera, and a few others I tested all work fine. However, Store (and Calculator) both crash as soon as they begin loading. The window comes up, then vanishes. :/ I've been looking for solutions for hours now. I've tried so many things to no avail. I'm so lost.

Here are some of my failed attempts at trying to fix it:

The only thing I haven't done as yet is do a repair installation thing where Windows re-installs but keeps your personal files, but I'm honestly not very eager to do so because I really don't have the time to go re-installing a multitude apps/programs that I use all the time. T_T I honestly haven't even downloaded any Apps from the store as yet, but I like checking now and then to see if there's anything useful. Not being able to open it at all is annoying. Even more annoying is the fact that Calculator doesn't work either.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

We religiously track Windows Application fault events in our environment.

Recently we have noticed that when, Word 2013 x86 version (15.0.4823.1000, 15.0.4805.1001) running on Windows 8.1 x64,  crashes due to corrupted heap, we find suspended winword process that have no running threads.  the ccorrupt heap crashes are of
the type  exception c0000374 in Ntdll.dll at offset 0x000e6054.  We have two different situations in which we can trigger a crash that will produce the corrupted heap.

The problem is after the App crash the Windows Error Reporting service, attaches the WerFault.exe to the crashed process and saves the WER Dump file.  The problem is after this process is finished we are left with Winword.exe process that are in suspended
state.  They are not visible in the TaskManager but they show-up in Procexp,  these process have no running threads and the End task or end task tree have no impact.  The only way to exit the suspended process is to log off the user session. 

The suspended Winword.exe process cause problems when we re-launch a clean word, we have an add-in that detect's the suspended Winword and will not run.

On a test machine we disabled the WER service and of course we no longer see suspended threads, this is not an option for use because stopping the WER service stops logging of all Application Fault event ID 1000 and Application hang 1001 entries from the Application

Who needs Windows Calc? Cortana can do simple math, and with one extra keystroke you can display a full-featured calculator in the Start menu.
By Ed Bott for The Ed Bott Report | February 24, 2016 -- 12:27 GMT (12:27 GMT) | Topic: Windows 10

You don't need an app to do basic math in Windows 10. If you've enabled Cortana, you can perform those calculations by tapping the Windows key and then typing the formula in the search box.

Make your formula as simple or as complex as you want, using standard operators: + and - for addition and subtraction, * and / for multiplication, % for percentages, ^ for exponentiation. Cortana automatically groups internal calculations; use parentheses if you want to control grouping.

As soon as you type an equals sign or press Enter, Cortana displays the result at the top of the search results list.

Want to do more calculations using the result of that formula? Press Enter to open the full calculator shown here.

Note that the calculator vanishes as soon as you click away, and you can't copy the formula or its results.

Hello Guys, lately I've been having some problems with my apps of windows thats driving me crazy, they just don't run.

It all started when I uninstalled the antivirus Kapersky, now, when I click on any windows app, it pops up and then disappears, I can see the software running on the lower bar, but its blank, and everytime I click on it dosent do anything, I have read several posts and threads about similar issues, seems that refreshing the windows OS will solve the issue its just that I have about 50 softwares on my computer of great need for my work and refreshing the OS will erase them all.

Can someone please help me about this, its urgent for me, THANKS!

A:Problem with Windows 8.1 Apps (Calendar, calculator, etc.)

I don't believe it's just you, daviduzago. I have been having problems with Windows 8.1 apps also - the ones I already have installed seem to be ok, but when I try to install a new one, it installs and then will not open - just reverts back to the Start Screen and I get errors in Event Viewer. I've tried many suggestions ranging from Synching the apps to changing user account, etc. but so far no luck in solving the problem. Will post back here if I believe I've found an answer, please do the same. Thanks.

I have been given four transcripts of telephone calls recorded at a call centre. All at different times on the same day. Two have the same callID number. The sequence of the numbers attributed to each call are odd. The first call has a higher number than later calls and the last two are also out of order. I am not sure if this is the right forum but i am desperate for some help. The transcripts are VERY important and I cannot be sure that they are the real deal because of the callID numbers. Any suggestions? Thank you in advance.

I have Windows XP, with Wordpad v5.1 and Notepad v5.1 as well. In Notepad, if I toggle off Word Wrap, I can then toggle on the Status Bar, and it shows me the line and column number in the status bar. It does not look like Wordpad has the ability to show line and column numbers. Does anyone know if there is a way to show that in Wordpad? Thanks.

Hi,

When we perform following operation on Win 7
Scenario 1
(9.1*10^ - 31*3*10^8) =
we can see the equation getting formed in following way:

what we see on the screen is this
(9.1*(10- 31*3*10^8))
and result on = comes to following
-84629999909

I would like to know on pressing - sign after ^ windows seems to replace the ^ operation with - operation. And when it does that it fails to compute the 9.1*10. To explain, if you execute same math equation with ^ sign i.e. as below:
Scenario 2
(9.1*10 - 31*3*10^8) =
window shows result as 91 the moment you input - operation in sequence.

I predict the same behavior even for the equation where user inputs - sign immediately followed by ^ sign. If window is replacing the - operation with ^ then logically it should do the same what I have explained above in Scenario 2.

Not sure what different logic windows is applying here. When I try to execute same logic on JEP Parser (Jep Console - DJep/JEP Java Math Expression Parser) this is what JEP gives as result:
JEP > (9.1*10 - 31*3*10^8)
-9.299999909E9

It seems there is a bug in the way Windows 7 replaces operation but forgets to execute its preceding operation, even though the precedence of previous operation is HIGH as compared immediate next operation.

Let me know if any one observed similar issue and what could be the correct way of implementation here.

Thanks in advance.

A:Windows 7 Calculator - Question on the logic for executing functions

Hi Abdul and welcome to W7 Forums

I've had a look at this and what I think is happening is this:

Normally, operators function in line with the normal hierachial preference (unitary sign, power, multiply and divide, plus and minus) unless the sequence is overridden by the use of parentheses (). A sum is evaluated as it is inputted so long as the hierachial level of each operator is the same or lower than the preceding one. However, when an operator of higher precedence is inputted, things change. In that case, the previous operator is not executed until after the current operation. Let's use an example:

A * B ^ C

With this, A is multiplied by the result of B risen to the power of C. It is not the result of A multiplied by B and then risen to the power of C. To achieve this, the first term needs to be enclosed in parantheses like this:

( A * B ) ^ C

Now, let's assume you made a mistake and that you really wanted to input a minus sign instead of the power. So you enter the following:

A * B ^ - C

The first term is still waiting for the outcome of the second term before it is executed, even if the operator of that term is corrected from one of higher precedence to an equal or lower one.

This is what I think is happening with your equation. You are wanting to raise B to a negative power of C, but instead are inadvertently changing the operator as described above. The correct operation can be done in two ways.

First of all, enclose - C in parentheses, so you get... Read more

Hey

I've been having a few issues recently with some programs with reside within the system32 folder, as said in the title paint, notepad and calculator. Explorer is having a different issue so I'll discuss it later.

The 3 programs listed are constantly crashing. Notepad and calculator are having significantly bigger issues than paint right now, however they all have the same issue.

Whenever I open one of these programs, it'll either be a few letter (numbers for calculator) and it'll crash, with the generic error message "xxxx has stopped working, Windows is searching for a solution". This problem happens consistently.

Explorer on the other hand, is behaving oddly. Every couple days (sometimes multiple times in a day) my toolbar will not pop itself back up (I have it set to autohide). While the trace of the hidden toolbar is visible, no moving of the mouse (even when on the desktop to avoid 'always on top' programs taking priority) on the toolbar will bring it back up. This usually results in just killing explorer.exe and re-running it.

Thanks,
Fuzz Ball

Hi there - I'm using a Surface 2 Pro running Windows 10 and noticed yesterday that a number of apps are simply not working when I log in using my profile (I am the user administrator on the machine, there are three other normal user accounts - family members)

The apps that are not working include, most annoyingly - the Store. Also, photos, calculator, People App and perhaps even the Google Chrome App (I haven't tested that exhaustively). There are two or three other apps affected as well, though I am at workright now and can't remember them exactly (but they are MS based ones that were more "default apps" rather than, say, games, or other apps downloaded from the store)

I noted on a number of forums around the web that the issue of non working people/calc/store/photos wasn't uncommon.

I've tried a number of possible solutions, but to no avail. I've tried wsreset, tried the latest troubleshooter from the MS site, even got into powershell and worked through commands there to try and put back into place the Store. I've tried to restore the system to an earlier point (2 weeks ago).

None of this has worked. All the apps open but do nothing. Then they eventually (5 seconds, maybe less) close of their own accord.

But here's the thing - This is only happening on my account. I can log in to any of the other three user accounts on the Surface and the store, calculator, people apps, photos etc - they all work.

So I'm flummoxed. I am thinking that this has only occurred... Read more

Hi all,
new to this so please be patient :)
I am running a pc with XP SP2, which is going fine - except for a calculator screen coming up - sometimes up to 100 of them - for no apparent reason. It happens randomly, sometimes when using Internet Explorer, sometimes while sitting unused, sometimes when using notepad. I have checked shortcuts, and there are no keys set to start calculator; I have checked the startup list (ie msconfig) and can't see it set to start with anything - the only thing I know for sure is that the calculators appear on the Task Manager list as many times as on screen. I have tried system restore to before it happened, it still keeps happening. I have also run AVG and Adaware, and cleaned out everything else I could think of. HELP PLEASE!!! thanks all! Mel.

I've been trying to set up a toolbar button in Excel that when clicked will bring up the Windows Calculator, but I just can't seem to find the way to do it. I know it can be done because I used to have it on my previous installation of Excel (Office Basic 2003 and my current installation is the same version).

Now I know I can just click on the Start Menu while I'm in Excel and then just go to Accessories and Calculator, but this is just a personal preference to have a toolbar button that will do the same thing.

I thought there was a Command Option that would allow me to just type in "calc.exe", but there's not. I tried a hyperlink to "Windows/System 32/calc.exe" and that works for the button (Custom button), but it gives a bunch of warnings before the Windows Calculator comes up. And as I recall, I never got those warnings before (one warns about hyperlinks and the other is similar).

And I looked on all the toolbar choices and I couldn't find any Windows Calculator button. There IS an Excel calculator button(s) to recalculate spreadsheets, but that's NOT what I want - I want the Windows Calculator.

I tried recording a macro and assigning it to the button, but the minute you go out of Excel the macro recorder doesn't record.

I also tried VBA, but I couldn't find any simple code to execute the calc.exe program. I thought maybe there would be a simple "run" statement, but I don't think there is. Actu... Read more

Actually... I'm running Office 2003 Pro and it has the Windows Calculator as a button called "custom". Under Toolbars> Customize> Commands Tab, clicked on Tools in the left window and scrolled about 2/3 of the way down in the right window. I've got two "Custom" buttons listed after "Camera" and before "Select Names"; one with a deck of cards icon and the other with a calulator icon. Drug it up to my tool bar, saved the settings, and the Windows calculator opens from it. Solitare opens with the deck of cards icon

I didn't even know they were there.... cool.

Hello all, I am new here and have never posted before so sorry if I do something wrong. I previously I had a problem with the start button and Cortana not working and I did some research and fixed that issue. Unfortunately I cannot recall how I fixed this issue. I think I read somewhere that the solution I used could affect the windows apps, and I don't regularly use these apps so I wouldn't have noticed immediately. I just found out that these apps are messing up and will not open. When I press the start menu and click all apps at the bottom there is a list of apps that do not work and they all start with "@microsoft" (I was having issues trying to attach a picture so here is a gyazo link for the picture attached.
