Dear RushFiles Users,

Windows Defender might identify the PC client installer as a threat.

We would of course never put malicious code into our software.

The threat is not always identified, and not always the same one is reported across different machines.

The installer was sent to Microsoft who have analyzed it and determined that no malware is included in the installer.

However, they have yet to include it as a false positive. What this means is that the installer might still trigger Windows Defender, but it should cease to happen after some time. 

If Windows Defender flags the installer as a threat on your system, then please Allow the threat in Windows Security and download it again in case it was auto-deleted.

Use the installer to install the client, then re-block the threat in Windows Security. This will remove the installer from your computer, but the application will remain functional as that does not have this issue.

We are waiting on Microsoft to correct the issue.

We're sorry for the inconvenience,

RushFiles Team


Starting with security intelligence update version 1.329.157.0 , our installers are not detected as threat anymore.

If, in Windows Update history -> Definition Updates, the latest security intelligence update is at least version 1.329.157.0 , then you don't have to do anything.

If you have a lower version number than this, then you can download the definition updates like so:

•    Go to 
•    Download the corresponding definitions (32 bit or 64 bit based on your operating system)
•    Run the downloaded file to install the new definitions

Or open Command Prompt as Administrator, and execute the following commands in the following order:

cd %ProgramFiles%\Windows Defender
MpCmdRun.exe -removedefinitions -dynamicsignatures
MpCmdRun.exe -SignatureUpdate
