I notice two items with over 300MB which I would like to Clean out with Disk Clean.  System Error Memory Dump Files 375M and Debug Dump Files 375M.  Will it hurt anything if I have Disk Clean clean them out?

Is this the Windows Disk Cleaner? If so, you can use it to remove all of your system restore points or just all

but the last. If you haven't done that there is likely a ton of useless restore points that can be removed.

 

If the program is not the Windows Disk Cleaner by Microsoft then there is a good possibility you downloaded

adware while installing it.

 

If you need further assistance or have a question, tell us what Windows OS you are using.
