I wonder can anyone recommend a free program out there that can find duplicate files, pictures etc on a computer? I found some but I am not sure if they are SpyFree and VirusFree.

Easy Cleaner is freeware and has a facility to find duplicate files of any kind (beside other functionalities). I have used it and I guess it's Virus Free. For more security about it you can download it from it's author's page, look in Google for ToniArts.

I'd have to go with clonespy also.

 

Easy cleaner also is a registry cleaner.

Why you should not use Registry Cleaners and Optimization Tools
 
There are numerous programs which purport to improve system performance, make repairs and tune up a computer. Many of them include such features as a registry cleaner, registry optimizer, disk optimizer, etc. Some of these programs even incorporate optimization and registry cleaning features alongside anti-malware capabilities. These registry cleaners and optimizers claim to speed up your computer by finding and removing orphaned and corrupt registry entries that are responsible for slowing down system performance. There is no statistical evidence to back such claims. Advertisements to do so usually are borderline scams intended to goad users into using an unnecessary and potential dangerous product.
 
Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons:
 
and "DuplicateFilesDeleter"... Well;
