Disk Clean Up

Hi I just set desktop back to factory restore yesterday and after downloading quite a few Security program etc I thought that i would give Disk clean up a run.

On a couple of the lines which were not ticked for removal were those 2.

  1. System Error memory dump files 532 Mb

  2. System queued window error reporting 314 Mb

I take it those are needed and that is why they are not ticked for removal.

I don't want to remove anything that is likely to interfere with the running of my computer, so should I just ignore them and wait and see if they get any larger,or are they files that are needed.

It would seem a lot since I have only reset the computer to factory settings and I am inclined to leave them.

Any advice welcome.

1.System Error memory dump files:Unless you are attempting to diagnose the cause of the problem, it is safe to let disk cleanup delete these files.

2.System queued window error reporting:If the system seems to be running as it should then those files are not needed for troubleshooting and can be deleted periodically.

Thanks gengiscant for the information.

I will wait and see if any other information is given if not I will go ahead and remove them.

Probably something to do with SP1 not downloading.I gave up trying but will try again once I have this computer running the way I want it.

Ok gengiscant went ahead and deleted them and they no longer show on Disk Clean Up, no doubt they will be back if the get any more problems.

Thanks.
