I recently ran a utiltiy included with "System Mechanic 5" that identifies duplicate .dll files on a system. It reported that i had over 4gig of duplicate files. Many of the duplicates have one file located int the "windowss\system32" directory and the duplicate copy in the C:\i386 directory. I am reluctant to just start deleting files, but i could certainly use the extra space. Can anyone tell me if it's safe to remove the duplicates from one of these directories without totally screwing up mys sytem.
