Yes, you can delete them (but if you need to Restore the phone to that same iOS, the file will have to be re-downloaded). I'm not a Windows guy, so not sure how well the Uninstaller will work. Really, all you need to do is delete the files. IIRC, they're here:
WinXP: \Documents and Settings\(username)\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates
Vista, Win7: \Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates
(In Win7 you'll need to Show Hidden Files and Folders to be able to see the AppData folder)
