why does search bring up duplicates of every file?

I did a search for all .doc files so I can copy them to a flash drive but when I checked, the search results showed duplicates of every file right down to the path.

I'm running XP if that has a jot of relevance.
cheers

click here - Don't click on View the Solution but scroll down to near the bottom of the page.

cheers VoG, but not sure where to click if not 'View the Solution' as my view of this page doesn't seem to suggest there is a solution unless I do click on this. Further down the page there is a 'View this Solution'with a free 7 day trial button but this points to the same sign up page. Other than that there are Expert Comments but these just point to the sign up and trial page as well.

Perhaps I sign up for the trial?

Oh well, the solution was to turn off indexing click here
