The Windows calculator leaves much to be desired. Fortunately, there are many replacements with excellent features, including AddUp, Auditor Calculator, calcANT, ESBcalc, Moffsoft FreeCalc, and Willy's Freeware Calculator. Each offers a unique blend of extras that make CALC.exe obsolete.

** NOTE: Removed AddUp as it is not free
