how to delete system error memory dump files (Kernel memory dump)?

Win 7 OS SSD 64MB
I want to max. free space on my SSD.
The memory dump file will not delete via
disk clean program.
The size of dump file is 505 MB.
I try over & over to delete.

Please state flow correction steps as
I am not totally familiar with all procedures,
or I would not be asking this question.

I am comfortable un-hiding folders and deleting what
I'm instructed to do;
but need to follow instructions exactly, as I'm 71 yrs. young.
I'll provide more data on my system if asked.

Thanks,
Jim

reboot the PC and repeatedly press the F8 key as soon as it starts back up (one time per second)
You should recieve a menu before windows starts loading - choose start windows in safe mode.
Once you log in when in safe mode you should be able to delete the file.

Just to make sure you are deleting a dump file, what is the name of the file you intend to delete?

I used your procedure to successful effect.
The simple solution of the three.

I'm asking for an answer before I close with awarding points.
The selection of Memory dump files is now ABSENT from the disk cleanup
Program. Will it appear in the future if there is an error (crash) report?
I do try to look & understand such infrequent reports, so I do want
that category to post again in the future.
Thanks,
Jim

Yes, if you have another crash and a dump file is created you will have that as a disk cleanup option.
