What is Central Rush. Removal reasons and methods

If Central Rush dangerous program has infected your system and you want to delete it – here you will find assistance. We can reveal many things about such kind of tools, and the best of them is that the files and private details are in safety. For the time being. We cannot call Central Rush a proper virus, which means that it's not going to grab your personal information or destroy your data, but it has many undesired functions. When it crawls inside, it lowers the OS’s security and calls other hazardous tools to enter. Most of them might be the other advertising tools, but a few will pose a serious threat. Based on this, we recommend you to uninstall Central Rush from the OS ASAP.



Central Rush adware is easy yet hazardous, and its danger becomes visible over time. Firstly, Central Rush simply shows you advertisement, but in 3-4 days, past the infection, you may realize that there are a few dubious programs on your PC. Such a situation can only get worse until the computer will refuse to load, littered with adware and malware.


To understand how the penetration has taken place, you have to see the aim of Central Rush. Here we've compiled a neat list of all things that Central Rush does to the device:


  • Central Rush has to apply a few protection algorithms to ensure its safety. It puts extra values to the Windows registry, creates scheduled tasks, and makes other things to ensure that you're unable to remove it. That’s why Central Rush malicious tool always comes back: it simply recovers itself after uninstallation, and you cannot do anything about it until you eliminate the ground of an issue.
  • The last but not the least crucial fact to know about this adware is that it critically diminishes the system’s defense. It alters the browser security algorithms to generate tons of pop-ups, and with those alterations, you won't receive warnings about dangerous sites or virus infection. With working adware inside the workstation, you might get infected by following a link.
  • Commonly, Central Rush gets into your system via bundling. It means that there are at least 3 more unwanted tools on your PC. It's not going to be efficient enough just to remove Central Rush – you should run a thorough check for more viruses and eliminate them.
  • Central Rush is able to display many links. It’s very aggravating and hinders your web-surfing experience, but aside from that – it enables fraudsters to make money from your activity. You must close all pop-ups to access the wanted text or video, and sooner or later you, accidentally, click them. That’s what scammers want since each mouseclick might bring more adware. Even if it won’t – you will appear on an extremely undesired web page, where any click can lead to either a bunch of adware on the workstation or a significant money loss.

How Central Rush gets into the system

We’ve explained before that Central Rush adware infects the system via affiliate installation, but didn't explain how that process goes. So, affiliate installation is the easiest infection method that Internet-criminals of all countries prefer to spread adware. There are three causes for it:


  • This type of infection doesn't require a lot of skill from scammers, compared to other penetration manners. It allows the dangerous tool to remain dormant, which means that it can't get into your system without any help. With bundling, victims perform the whole job just infecting their computers in the manual mode.
  • Hackers do not do anything illegal when they utilize the bundling to infect the victim’s systems. During the installation of Central Rush from a bundle, you get a massive EULA to familiarize with, where all the functions of the advertising tool are listed. To put it simple, by accepting the installation, a user accepts all given conditions, and scammers are immune to any legal accusations.
  • Bundling allows infecting your system with many malware in a single shot. It is considerably faster to eliminate one program than 4 or 5 of them, and it lets Central Rush adware to stay put.


When it comes to the contamination way – it’s not intricate at all. Swindlers put their installer on dozens of sites, sit back in their chairs, and relax. If a user finds a package, it gets downloaded, and through the installation, the package displays to them a menu with an easy selection between a recommended installation technique and the one for experienced operators. The recommended technique is selected beforehand, so if a user likes clicking "ok" everywhere – the whole bundle gets installed.
