Windows 7: files are being duplicated

files are being duplicated

first, let me apologize for the size of the pic. i was a little confused with the tutorial. If someone can reszie the pic to the correct format, i will modify my post.

if you look at the pic, it seems that every file in this folder has been duplicated, but and additional string has been added to each file. My question is, how can i delete all of these files. There are too many to delete one by one. I havent gone thru every folder, but i know there are a lot of them taking up a lot of space on my pc. Can anyone help?

Click on "type" near upper middle. That will arrange them so the files with the added string are all put together.

Highlight top file and then left click on bottom file while holding shift key. This will get rid of them all in between, inclusive.
Hit delete.

Search *.placeextensionhere in top right of Windows Explorer.

So if extension is .yhj

*.yhj

They'll all show up.

every file is duplicated. which means i would have to do this for every extension. heres an example

blocklist.xml~5H225MH4
blocklist
crashreporter.ini~8GVTR0TC
crashreporter
crashreporter-override.ini~RF2OHU3M
crashreporter-override

i tried to search for files which just contained "~", but that was too confusing as well.
