    Calculator installed ok from the store tested it and working ok.
    So have you tried running the trouble shooter at all as that might fix your problem
    When I wast trying to re-upload the Calculator I would get the message that it's already installed on my system, but when I was trying to remove it I would get an error saying that it's nowhere to be found.

    No I haven't tried running the Troubleshooter for I had very little expectations that it would be able to fix the problem.

    smerH,
    You mentioned you had "roll back the update".
    I assume you meant you uninstalled that update.
    I would like you you to go one step further.........................
    Providing you do create restore points regularly.
    Do a system restore. Pick a date that is a few dates BEFORE you installed that update. Use that date as your restore point.
    System Restore Windows 10
    I've done it, after the rollback didn't solve the problem I just didn't type this in my initial post. Sorry.

    As of now, I've downloaded the ISO disk, burned it and have used the "Repair" option on it and it not only fixed the problem I had but also installed properly the latest update which was initially the case of the problem. The only small problem I have right now is that one of the apps that came pre-installed on my laptop is marked "this app isn't working correctly" with the suggetiong of re-installing it, and another one was removed completely because "it doesn't work on this version of Windows". Both apps were very low key so I am not worried too much about them.

    The Calculator app is working fine now.

    A lot of people found various odd little apps were removed by the upgrade to 1511 (speccy comes to mind) with a message they were incompatible but re-installing them after they still worked fine. Depends on the app of course but you could try it if you wanted. If it doesn't work and you do want to fix them let us know what they are - perhaps someone has a solution..

    Glad the repair worked anyway :)

    Well, since you've asked so nicely... :)
    As of now I have:
    Windows 10 Home
    Version 1511
    OS Build 10586.36

    The first notification in my Action Center was about Dolby Home Theater V4 "...not working properly". I didn't take a screenshot of an exact message because when I clicked on "Learn More" it brought me to the Microsoft webpage explaining what's going on but at the same time it deleted the notification itself and I couldn't see it again. If you know how to view cleared messaged in the Action Center, please let me know, I couldn't figured it out even with the google search. So this is the Microsoft webpage:

    I went on the Lenovo website but they only have drivers for Windows 8:
    Calculator doesn't initiate.-win2-1.jpg
    Dolby's website only lists other manufactures websites for help with the drivers:

    Acer's website doesn't even list in their support my build but gives the generic model list of drivers, where Dolby Home Theater V4 is not listed:
    Calculator doesn't initiate.-win2-3.jpg
    As long as there is audio coming out of my speakers I don't really care that much how it works so it's a very lower priority for me now.

    The second issue was with Host App Service:

    The details:

    I've never used that App before and if it was running in the background and the current Build doesn't need I am fine with that too.

    Several months ago, I removed all apps except Store using PowerShell. I was missing Calculator, so today I tried to reinstall using PowerShell and got a bad command message. I tried a different command, which was sufficiently different, but it didn't restore the Calculator. I installed it from the Store. That worked well. I would have done anything to avoid reinstalling W10.

    "I installed it from the Store. That worked well."

    No further action was required.
    Done.

    @smerH: If all else fails, you can download and install the old calculator:
