    CCleaner is definitely the best cleaning program for Windows, including lots of useful features and a very fast and reliable cleaning method. I’ve tried a few other apps and I was always anxious about the side-effects of using them, but since a couple years ago I’m using CCleaner on a regular basis to keep my system clean.

    Ash,

    Per thewindowsclub.com “Accumulation of duplicate files in the system is one of the major
    reasons to make your system slow and the latest version of CCleaner
    includes a new tool named Duplicate File Finder. This new tool uncovers
    the duplicate files in the system and removes them while freeing the disk space
    and making your machine work faster. But it is our considered opinion
    that one must use this tools with care – and make sure that you know
    what you are deleting, lest you end up deleting some important file
    which may be required to be present in more than one location.”

    So I am unsure about deleting duplicate files.

    Since you have used it for many years with no problems, how do I determine what I’m deleting is safe to do so? CCleaner Free gives me no info on that.

    I just scanned using the new duplicate file finder option and have a duplicate list a mile long!

    I am editing out: “Accumulation of duplicate files in the system is one of the major reasons to make your system slow”.

    Personally speaking, I never use any Duplicate File Finder. This tool can be used to identify duplicate non-system files. For instances if you have the same images and photographs in 2 or more locations, you may want to keep only one set and delete the duplicates. I would not delete any system file, even if you find duplicates in other locations.

    Thanks for sharing this, I test this new feature in the video http://www.vhow.net/ccleaner-delete-duplicate-file-finder. Compare to other special duplication finder tools mentioned in lifehaccker ( http://lifehacker.com/5293767/fast-duplicate-file-finder-finds-your-file-dupes ), CCleaner only had very limited feature, not able to search file by specific file extension, such .doc .exe files.
