    I downloaded a registry checker and it had a thing in it I could see if I had any duplicate files....HOLY SHAMOLY, there are a ton of them, I am afraid to delete....see below, can someone advise on which is safe to delete? trying to clean up computer. Kindest regards, Christine....OH MY, there are so many I posted two sets and they are too long to post. Maybe just advise me on if I can delete one if there are 2? Anyone know?

    I had the same problem when I want to backup my files. I ran Registry Fix (free download), and when I checked again, the duplicate files were gone. It usually only finds a few problems, but this time it found thousands. In addition, my computer has been running slow, even though I moved all of my files onto an external hard drive and de-fragmented my hard drive. The computer has been doing weird things for several months, and it's getting worse. Dell replaced my motherboard but it hasn't changed things. I ran Super Anti-Spyware (another free download) and it also found nothing, and never has. I was on the phone for hours with Dell tech support, with no results. My next step is to backup my files, and reinstall the operating system. Does anyone know if I'm on the right track? Should I uninstall everything and reformat my hard drive? Could anyone direct me to some information on how to make sure I do everything correctly? I want to make sure I can reinstall all of my software and updates as well, as well as settings for e-mail and so forth. I know I did this one time before, a long time ago, and it was a nightmare. Of course I didn't know very much about computers back then. Thanks for any help you can give me!

    Do yourself a favour and uninstall that piece of slimeware.

    Never, ever, ever use any program to delete duplicate files. They really have no clue.
    The files that you have listed above have the same name, but that does NOT make them dups! As well, many files must be there twice in different folders. Just, don't worry about them.
    Now, if the files are YOUR personal files and you only want to have one copy floating around, feel free to delete those. But never delete other duplicate system files.

    As well, never, ever, ever run a Registry Fix program. They perform no useful function, contrary to all the hype on their web site.

    I second WhitPhil. Don't fix the registry and leave non-personal files alone. Duplicates are needed in many cases. If your drive is too full, that means you need a new drive and you need to clone the old to a new, larger one. Bite the bullet, get a larger drive, and don't ruin your installation by removing dupes that may be needed.

    Thanks for your advice! I'm still having all these weird problems with my computer though. My drive was far from full and I still bought a new external hard drive to just get them off of my computer to keep them safe. by the way, my duplicate files were in the same folders. For instance, I had double "my documents". Now that the double files are gone, supposedly registry fix (slimeware) saves backup copies before fixing anything but I'm not sure I should bother with putting them back. Should I continue with my plan to uninstall the operating system and reinstall? That is what Dell suggested that I do. I don't trust tech-support though. They never really solve my problems. It just seems to make sense to start with a clean slate at this point, if possible.

    Though it looks like you lucked out on the registry fixer, they are not a good idea and usually cause more harm than they are worth. Avoid them.

    If you are willing to start from scratch and have saved all you want to keep, then go for it. There is nothing quite like a nice, new, clean installation in which you can set things up the way you wish you had the first time.
