Hi Shellysman Welcome to Seven Forums.
Yes you may delete the archived error files. The low memory warning is not due to them though because they would be on your hard drive (HDD) and not in memory.

Maybe it's Virtual memory and not real memory that is causing the problem? If so then 11GB might make a difference.
