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

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

    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.

    It's unlikely in the extreme that MS will do anything with your
    information other than add it to a database/knowledge base.

    What are the problems you are having> Perhaps someone here can help?

  7. WER = Windows Error Reporting

  8. 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
