    A physical memory dump is created if the computer rebooted due to a critical error, you can choose what type of memory dump you want created in your startup and recovery options, they are generally for use in trouble shooting by admins and such the avg user isn't gonna dig through and try and find the offending code.

    To disable the feature go to System Properties / Advanced / Startup & Revocery options and then set the Memory Dump to "none".

    (sorry if the above directins are a word or two off - I'm not at an XP system at the moment)
