Updates for Anti-Malware 1.40


Recommended Posts

Hi, I just downloaded Anti-Malware 1.40 and couldn't find the 'download updates' link. I remember there used to be one.

This is kind of necessary for the case where the infected computer can't connect to the Internet for some reason. Anybody know where the updates are?

The company that manages my server found a bad hard drive and reimaged my server for me, so the offline database installer is out of commission for the moment.

You can grab the latest database from your own computer when needed. The location of the database is as follows:

Windows XP

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\rules.ref

Windows Vista

C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\rules.ref

Windows Vista

OK, so the procedure would be:

  1. Install Anti-Malware on the clean, Internet-capable computer;
  2. Run the normal update process;
  3. Copy the rules.ref database to your USB drive;
  4. Install Anti-Malware on the infected computer;
  5. Copy rules.ref from the USB drive to the appropriate folder on the infected computer;
  6. Go ahead and scan for malware.

Thanks, just wanted to make sure.
