Can I merge two trees?

Can someone please help?

I've been using PAF to build my family tree for a number of years. I was using a PC and then last year began using a laptop as well. I had a copy of my PAF tree on both the PC and the laptop...and've probably guessed...I'm now in a mess because I have been working on the tree on both the PC and the laptop and so now have a lot of people on one tree and not the other and vice versa. :-( Is there a way of merging the two together so that I don't have to go through each, one by one, looking to see if a person is on both and then adding them individually?

I have USB memory sticks and discs so putting both the trees onto my PC is not a problem.

Thank you.
