Please read the instructions first in full, then proceed with the instructions handy (printed?).

The easiest way:

Go to Start->Search->Files and folders
Enter calc.exe in the search box
You can limit the search to drive C: only
Click Search

It may be found in several places, we want the one located in the SYSTEM32 subfolder.
Leave the search window open; if it's maximized (full screen), click the "double box" icon to make it a window and resize it to be smaller.

Now right-click the Start button and click Explore. Drill down to Programs->Accessories
Place this window beside the search results window, adjust sizes and placement if necessary to see them both in full.

Now right-click and drag the calc.exe from the search results window into the right pane of the explorer window, where the contents of Accessories menu are displayed.
When you drop the calc.exe there, a menu will appear - choose "create shortcut here".

That's all. You can close all the windows and enjoy your calculator shortcut back.

If the windows is installed in C:\ then open the folder C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories and then right click on the folder and then click New->Shortcut and click on browse button and refer to the Calculator exe file it will be in C:\Windows\system32\calc.exe select the exe and click Next and then Finish, it will again appear in the Accessories.

*Note:- If WindowsXP is installed in another drive then change the drive letter accordingly i.e if it is in the D: drive then the path will be D:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories and C:\Windows\system32\calc.exe consequently.

How does 70.21 =100 X 3^0.3219, please explain.

I am afraid one cannot always justify a result that YOU invented. You must have made a mistake in your calculation.
This multiplied by 100 yields 142.4247061
If you divide by 2 you get
That is close to your 70.21.

The conclusion is that you made a mistake.

'messages sent' deleted by mistake

  1. Log into your Yahoo Mail account -
    When you delete messages in Yahoo! Mail, they go to your Trash folder. If you delete a message by mistake, for a little while you'll be able to find it in Trash and move it back to your Inbox or another folder. Just remember that messages in your Trash folder can be deleted at any time, without warning.
  2. To permanently remove the contents of Trash yourself, just click Empty next to Trash on the left side of the page. When messages are emptied from the trash folder, they are permanently deleted from the Yahoo! Mail server and cannot be recovered.
