Method one: Sort the files on your desktop with the files name, you will find the duplicate files come together, then you need to delete them one by one
Method two: If you not only want to delete the duplicates on desktop, but the whole computer, if there are so many files, you then need to ask for help with the third party application.

Debbie, It all depends upon where they are located. If you have them all in the same place, and don't care what all is deleted with them, you can choose Edit / Select All / then hit the Delete key, when they all are indicated as selected.If they are in a single day's grouping, use your mouse to click on the day header in Outlook, and only those files in that single day will be selected - but all of that day's files will. Again, then click Delete or the Red X. I hope this helps. Cheers! -a.
You need a larger drive, or less programs. windows uses 2.88 GB and likes 1 GB to swap in.
Try going into control pannel and add/remove programs and on the left side of the screen there will be add remove windows components - to delete things you don't need. Games, MSN explorer, fax services, desktop wall paper, mouse pointers, paint etc. All of these will free up 50- 60 MB. Which isn't a lot, but its something. There are also ways to delete all the help files, and empty folders, duplicate files etc. The bottom line is a larger drive is required.

Since you know what kind of files your are searching for, In XP, Windows Search Companion makes it easy to find duplicate files with the file search utility.
There are also many fine and free programs for accomplishing this mechanical feat. Let's first look at the Window's utility.
Create a Folder on My Desktop by right clicking and select new folder. Name this folder "Mixed up files" or something you can remember. It will be on your desktop.
GOTO->START->(menu pops up)->Click Search(magnigfying glass icon)->All Files and Folders->
Stop and take this in.
Text files will end in .txt, word docs end in .doc or (2007) .docx
picture files will most likely be .jpg, .bmp, .gif, or .png.
We are going to use a wildcard search. An asterisk(*) represents the filename ina wildcard search.
For example in the [All or part of the filename] Box, we can search for ALL files of that flavor.
Type these wildcards in the first box exactly or copy and paste.
*.txt; *.jpg; *.gif; *.bmp; *.png;
LOOK IN: Drop Down Box-> CLICK->My Computer
Click Search. Be patient, there may be more than you know of...
Wait for the utility to finish.
GOTO Edit in the Toolbar and choose Select All. Move to the folder you created in My documents.
You know have them in one folder (on your Desktop) and now I will find a utility to handle the job.
You may want to back up to a DVD or CD in case of a crash.
