no

Unless you want alot of problems. The blue indicates they are system files, particularly the system 32 files have most of the drivers that run your PC. Viruses do infect system 32 files, but I would not go deleting anything yourself. I suggest using malwarebytes to scan for any nasties.

Unless you have a very specific need, and you understand what you are doing, you should not delete or in any way interfere with the contents of the windows folder. These files are critical to your computer's operation. Windows Explorer (or similar utilities) will not show corrupt files any different from others.
