A massive MEMORY.DMP file created by Windows...
It seems this massive (1 Gb) MEMORY.DMP file was created during a windows crash down, I'm assuming as some sort of backup. Can I safely remove this file? I'm not quite sure how important it is at this point...

Yeah, you can delete it. It's simply all the info that was in ram written to a text file when Windows crashed.
You can also turn it off so that file isn't created when Windows crashes. Go to Start->Settings->Control Panel->System.
1) Click the Advanced tab.
2) Under the Startup and Recovery heading, click the Settings buttons.
3) Under the Write debugging information heading, click on the drop-down that contains the words "memory dump" and change it to "none".
4) Under the System Failure heading, you may also want to uncheck "Automatically Restart," if it's checked.
5) Click OK to close the windows and you're all set.
