Exclamation Program for deleting duplicate files?

I need a program that can delete duplicate files. Before I formatted my desktop computer I moved all my music files over to an external hard drive. I also moved my laptops music files which was basically the same library to the same hard drive. Then I copied both libraries over to my desktop computer and some how both Windows Media Player and iTunes imported ALL of my music and I have tons of duplicate files. I have over 2,500 songs which takes up around 20gb and not I have like 3 times that because of the duplicates. I need a program to remove the duplicates because I don't want to do it manually because it will take forever. Any suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

how are they named because it is impossible to have 2 files with the same name in the same folder and if they are named say "copy song.mp3" sort them by name and delete them if they are in different folders just delete the folders and if that fails just try this

They are named like this. Song.mp3 and song.mp3 (2). The folder structure in iTunes is Artist>CD Title and I have tons of cds by the same artists so it's going to take forever if I have to go into all of them. Thanks for your help.
