You can try Ccleaner, it is in the down load section.  You will have to check the boxes that remove them, you should take note of at least the last ten events.

Hi brseavey :)

May I ask you where you see these lines? In the Windows Disk Cleanup utility?

Dopplegangger : That fixed it. Thank-you. Do you have time to give me a little insight into how this worked?

The system disk cleaner does not remove log files, they are important for diagnosing problems.  When ever you do a clean up with Ccleaner make note of the last 10 events, I rarely clean out the logs as they are helpful but do get out of hand after a couple of years.

I'm pretty sure that the Windows Disk Cleanup utility actually remove these files, otherwise, it wouldn't list them. Maybe it couldn't remove them due to another reason, permission issues for example.

FWIW:  I would never remove dump files...it's not like 498MB is the size of a hard...heck, it's not even the size of a small flash drive.

 

Dump files are useful for troubleshooting system issues that exist now...or in the future.  Ccleaner deletes these with the default settings, one reason I'm not a Ccleaner fan.
