  1. I was looking for a file and I got a result. 2400 entries for the same one file. STUPID! Any recommendations for a good freeware search program for Win7 64bit that works? Wait, I just check again. I'm now up to 3500 results for the same one file, which I might ad isn't what I'm looking for...sigh

    I use ccleaner to clean old files. I need a desktop search engine thats good at finding them

    Sorry, I should clarify.

    Ccleaner has a duplicate file finder which I thought may be useful to you.

    Oh OK Gotcha. unfortunately the thousands of copies of the file it found is in actuality only a single file caught in some kind of loop, which isn't the first time I've seen this behavior. I downloaded one here called xplorer2 which unfortunately uses the same search engine and only offers a different interface.
