How do I indentify and delete duplicate and files in Windows 7 and those that are not Win 7 files

I used a program called IntelliMover and believe it moved over unnecessary files and folders.  How can I identify and delete these files?

If you make sure the files aren't used by some program or Windows, then, the answer is YES.
Easier would be, to just search for duplicates in folders where files aren't needed by Windows or programs.
