Hi,
Can anyone explain why I get duplicate search results in Windows/Search??
Makes life inteesting when deleting duplicates which aren't really!
Cheers

Some programs that are essential to windows and are stored in Dllcache
folder. For example Explorer.exe is such program. Programs that are written
to search for duplicates will ignore this folder but since you are using the
Windows own search, it does not know the difference.

You should be maybe able to find a program that will find duplicates with
out showing Dllcache. Just do a search on internet.
