In trying to free up and clean up some space on my PC I was doing a defrag and the report listed the file Windows\Debug\UserMode\usernenv.log as not being able to be defragmented. I found the file and it is 4GB big! I looked online to see if I could delete the file, but I didn't find anyone saying it was ok to delete it. Can I actually delete this file? I guess it has a bunch of group policy info it in, but I can't even open the file in wordpad/word/etc to see what is in it. Can I delete this file w/o harming my PC, or am I just gonna have to live with it on my HD?

usernenv.log - are you sure about spelling? There no single Google reference to a file like that.

That's userenv.log not usernenv.log.

The userenv.log should be a Text Document, therefore you should be able to delete it. What is your extension showing?

Userenv.log is a log file with different levels of information concerning your log on, log off, and other user environment activity. This log file can help you debug problems related to policy application and profile application and saving.
You may also have userenv.bak file, which is the backup file for the log file.
If you do not need the debugging capability, you can delete the files.
