        I’ve a few irritating problems with programs stopping working suddenly.  Old programs so perhaps that isn’t relevant.

        Scanning log files, there is one called SRU.log which is ubdated after the failure.  It is located in c:\windows\system32\sru\  and that directory includes 10 files occupying 64 mb of space, almost all of which is srudb.dat

        Oddly my quick search is quite unrevealing on what “SRU” actually is.  I would guess it is not anything to do with sulphur recovery unit….

        Doesn’t seem likely but could it have anythign to do with old programs freezing  (“Eudora is unresponsive…”)?

        Any idea what this is?

        Win10forums has a query about the SRUjet throwing up errors which seems to provide a resolution.

        I think it’s a symptom rather than a cause, as SRUDB is a database related to Diagnostics Policy Service: What is SRUJet?
