As you say it looks fishy, But have you got XP

Try moving it to a different folder to see what happens

Windows creates memroy dump files when it shuts down unexpectedly.

click here;en-us;316450&Product=winxp and you will see it is nothing fishy.

yes i do have xp, this file is 1 gig in size, is it necessary to keep, or can i remove it

As it says in the link

"You may want to store a complete memory dump or a kernel memory dump to analyze it or to provide it to Microsoft Product Support Services during a case."

If you do not want it for theses reasons then delete it.
