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.

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?

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.
