As I understand from posts here at TSG, it is best to leave "duplicates" alone, unless you are very sophisticated and are sure which are not needed for your system to run. Some dups are required!

redoak is right....don't touch anything that is a duplicatye within the windows files itself - As testes are needed for it to repair itself should a file get corrupt for example.

Why exactly do you wish to do this?

In which case, try the program linked above.

Just don't be tempted to delete any other files that you do not recogize.
