Windows 7: 7 ultimate calculator miscalculating

7 ultimate calculator miscalculating

I had home premium on my laptop and decided to upgrade it to ultimate (win 7 of course). Wierd thing and I can't say if it is from home premium as well, but since having ultimate on the laptop the calculator counts incorrectly.

I'm wondering if anyone has experienced this, if it is a virus (as no virus protection I have setup reads any danger).

How does one go about correcting something like this?
I don't even know what kind of information to post to get help with the issue.

you know i'm not that good with numbers, but lets say I add two and three digit numbers, the sum comes out off by a hundred or so as compared to doing long math by hand. I might not know calculus, but I can add. the calculator counts wrong

i was adding up bank account problems.
i swear i was in the green, it says the red.
i added up my purchases to my balance, i got a figure 100 to the red with the calculator and less than 30 to the red by long math.
i double checked it, i tripled checked it in case it was a late night vision thing.
no, it counts wrong in the double and triple digits numbers.

no simple numbers like 1-10 or 20 or so it does just fine. but once i've entered seven or so double or triple digit numbers, the calculation is incorrect.

Are you entering the decimal point correctly? Give me some actual figures as an example (if these are from your bank account, under no circumstances post any revealing account information).

You might like to use the Problem Steps Recorder so that we can see this problem in action. You will need to zip the file up before attaching it (and please use Zip).

Is this possible? I see that the window edges cannot be dragged to enlarge them. It would sure help my aging eyesight to make the standard calculator about twice its size.
