Q: Delete application Crash Dump files?

[I tried a Search but did not find anything, perhaps my search terms were not so good ]

I have a few application crash dump files (.dmp) in ...\AppData\Local\CrashDumps. Can I delete them safely using Windows Explorer?

I have already removed the reports from the Acton Center and Disk Cleanup did not touch them.

I asked in case somewhere in the Registry there were references to these files. If so, deleting them "manually" might upset things.

I would run CCleaner but allow it to make a back up of the registry.
