I am using the duplicate file finder in CCleaner and am reluctant to move forward and delete the dupes. Is there a way to go forward and make sure that I don't do anything I might regret. What should I look for before I start to get rid of them.

 

This is on a fresh install in a laptop I rebuilt. Nothing but drivers and a few apps. All updates have been successfully installed and are up to date. Thanks

Strange. What duplicate files you are looking for or what you hope to find, if you have a fresh clean installation like You said? 

CCleaner makes only list, You yourself will do the choice, what to do for next, delete something or not.

Understand that. What I should zone in on is which file between the duplicates should I delete. The paths are the same at a glance and some are not. They are all driver files during the installation. I used double driver to install them from a similar machine/model. Some did not install correctly so I had to reinstall one by one on some of them.
