Can I safely dump ALL the duplicate entries?

easy cleaner was never really released for Vista or W7 and has not been updated in years. I also read one review that said the duplicate file finder can mess up your system if you allow it to delete duplicate files; there are very good reasons to have identical files in different folders. So if you choose to use it in W7 then you might look over the results but I wouldn't let it delete dup files.

vmars, autoruns has many tabs, could you post a screen shot of the full autoruns window showing what you say is duplicated?

Thanks for the warning.
Ok, I will take a snap shot asap.
But right now I am trying to get my printer (hp D1341) running on
Belkin (USB) wireless Router, for my two laptops.

When you right click on a file do you have two "Send To" menu options? Because that is what context menu's are.

I second what Shintaro said. If you see duplicate "Send To"s in the context menu when you right-click then yeah it's an issue but if not then it likely is one Send To when you right-click on a particular thing and the other when you shift+right-click (this gives an extended "Sent To" list of choices). I have duplicates of those all over Autoruns but I don't see dups in my context menus.
