I don't know what ERU stands for, but the .exe extension indicates that it is a program.

The ERU.exe program is used to backup the ten files needed for Windows 95: autoexec.bat (technically, not needed, unless you want to load commands that can be loaded only that way), command.com, config.sys, io.sys, msdos.sys, system.ini, win.ini, protocol.ini, system.dat, and user.dat. You run eru.exe from within Windows, and it prompts you to select a floppy drive or a directory on the hard drive, where it makes backup copies of those ten files. The backups will have a modified extension to prevent accidental running.

If you need to use the backups, you run ERD.exe from the DOS prompt.
