Cole2kmedia is a codec pack that has the files necessary for you to play various media file types like Divx,Xvid, MP4, and to decode various audio formats. It should be safe.

I wasn't aware of this thread when I was helping the OP in this other new thread http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=62093.0.  He apparently had not removed McAfee and ran into problems having 2 resident AV's.

In theory, yes. It will be recreated on next boot.
But you don't need to delete it. Just boot.

It won't make itself again unless you have a bsod again, that is when a memory.dmp file is created.

- The memory.dmp file is created when your system crashes it contains what is in memory at the time of the crash. It could be as large as your memory.
 
If you have the tools and experience you can examine this file to help discover why the crash happened, if you don't have this experience and tools, it is worthless to you. The older the file is the less worth it is also.
 
If windows were to crash again then it would create a new memory.dmp file if one wasn't present or replace any existing one. So there really is no downside to deleting this memory.dmp file.

Yep.  Don't forget to update your Signature (you can make it for several machines).   ;)

You're welcome.

Only you and moderators/admin can see your email addresses, like you can't see the email addresses of others, unless they have failed to check the Hide email address option.

That rather depends on what you mean by how many MB does it use ?
If you are talking download size that has been answered, if you are talking about Hard Disk space when installed approx, 34MB.

If you are talking RAM, that rather depends on if you have the free version and no resident protection enabled of not allowed to start on boot ?

I have the paid version with resident protection ant the task manager reports different sizes depending on what you look at, see image. But I don't find it in anyway hogging either RAM or CPU.
