I would be very wary.

Revo Uninstaller, (if that is what you have), also has the Junk File Cleaner option, but unless you are sure that you know what you are doing, I would leave well alone.

Those files you mentioned may well be proper files. I also have a tmp file in my System32 folder and I don't intend to remove it.

The db, (database?), GID, and gid files may also be required.

Revo Uninstaller

Yes, that is what is installed and I ran the ''junk file cleaner' option. The list above shows the results.
