After clicking the "Allow" button, rushpushy[.]com gets permission to show notifications and opens another similar page (kokotrokot[.]com) designed to trick users into agreeing to receive notifications too.

Rushpushy[.]com and other pages of this type in general

Rushpushy[.]com (and similar websites) can show notifications designed to promote other untrustworthy sites. Most of them use one or another clickbait technique to trick visitors into allowing them to deliver notifications. Rushpushy[.]com and similar pages should never be trusted.

How did adware install on my computer?

Lots of PUAs are distributed by including them as optional downloads or installations in downloaders and installers for other programs. They can be deselected in "Custom", "Advanced", or other options that those downloaders and installers have. If users leave those settings unchanged, they agree to download or install unwanted apps.

Apps of this kind can be distributed through deceptive advertisements that can execute certain scripts or fake installers. Fake installers are promoted on shady (often deceptive) websites. It is important to know that those installers can be used to distribute malicious software.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

It is recommended to use official websites and direct links as sources for downloading programs and files. Programs should not be downloaded or installed without checking their downloaders or installers for unwanted offers and declining those offers.

Additionally, it is advisable to avoid clicking on ads that appear on shady websites. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
