    Disk cleanup - System error memory dump files

    Is there something useful to do with System error
    memory dump files, or can I safely tell Disk Cleanup
    to delete them?

    Unless you are attempting to diagnose the cause of the problem, it is safe
    to let disk cleanup delete these files.

    As Jeff said. *AND* Make a note of the disk space shown for WER logs in the
    Disk Cleanup window. See:

    Looks like I deleted then too soon - after I deleted them, a function
    for sending error reports to Microsoft was unable to send error
    reports for some recent problems in a search function because it
    couldn't find the appropriate files.

    I couldn't diagnose the cause of the problem myself, but would
    like to have Microsoft do it for me.

    What are WER logs? I don't remember even seeing them mentioned
    in my Disk Cleanup window.

    That's not worth worrying about. If the problem is one that MS is likely to
    look at, then it's going to happen again. You can delete these error reports
    (if they aren't already gone) in Control Panel \ System & Maintenance \
    Problem Reports & Solutions \ See Problems to Check. Right-click and choose
    Delete.
