I'd suggest taking a look at this article: https://support.piriform.com/hc/en-us/articles/204950144-How-do-I-use-CCleaner-for-Windows-Duplicate-File-Finder- (specifically, the Which duplicates should I delete? section). 

In short, though, please do not delete any files from the Windows, Windows.old, or Program Files (or Program Files (x86)) folders - I see several of these listed in the list. 

Files in your Download folders, or libraries such as your Documents, Pictures, or Videos libraries should be fine to delete as long as you're sure you no longer want them. For other folders, though, I'd recommend a great deal of caution.
