hi, just installed the above after seeing it mentioned on another thread, just run it and there are loads of duplicates, the question is, does the list include one you have to keep or are the ones listed all the ones to get rid of, hope that makes sense ,,,,,,,thanks

Hi, Trust Easycleaner. it's never let me down in over four years.
It will only delete one of the duplicates.

Hi, I have just re-read my reply and thought it was a bit vague so I'd better explain more fully.
With duplicates you can never get the same file twice in a single directory or folder as Windows will not allow it to happen.
However, you can have the same file (say a picture file) in two different folders and this is what Easy cleaner shows you.
If you do not want to keep the same file twice and take up valuable space, then highlight the file you do not want to keep and it will delete it for you.
Unnecessary files and registry files or entries are shown singly and can be deleted.
I hope this clarifies the situation regarding Easycleaner.

thanks for that, i have made the mistake of highlighting it all and clicking "delete" then of course, hardly anything would work, so i used "go-back" to put it right. but i will now try again....
