Personally use Beyond Compare (http://www.scootersoftware.com/)
There are numerous others including one by IDM (ultraedit) and an open
source one (http://www.winmerge.org/)
You should also consider using Tortoise SVN (Subversion) to manage
your source code development. It will also perform delta comparisons
between versions. Use Lex Jansens site (http://www.lexjansen.com/
sugi) to search for papers about CVS or SVN
