Many appcrash_GWXUX... folders. Delete them?

I have about 150 folders with names like AppCrash_GWXUX.exe_nnnnnnn...
They are in the ...\Windows\WER\ReportArchive\ folder.

Any issue with deleting them?

Larry unless I am very much mistaken that is to do with the 10 upgrade rubbish they are shoving down our throats.

Personally I have deleted from my registries ( a few machines) any GWX stuff.

But as I said I am 100% sure of why they are placed in that folder.

I upgraded to Win 10. AppCrash file gone. I suppose more will collect but that's expected.
