# Definitions file location?

## Recommended Posts

What is the location of the definition files? I am using Deep Freeze and want to do a redirect of the files and or folders, in order to do updates without unfreezing the system. What do I need to do for this to work properly?

By using the guide below you can find the location of the rules file. It is called rules.ref

Note: If using a software firewall besides the built in Windows Firewall you'll need to exclude them from it as well

For Windows XP:

• C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe
• C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamgui.exe
• C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe
• C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\rules.ref
• C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbam.sys
• C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbamswissarmy.sys

For 32 bit versions Windows Vista or Windows 7:

• C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe
• C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamgui.exe
• C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe
• C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\rules.ref
• C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbam.sys
• C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbamswissarmy.sys

For 64 bit versions of Windows Vista or Windows 7:

• C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe
• C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamgui.exe
• C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe

Sorry for not mentioning that I am using XP Pro. Thanks for the info. Can I redirect the rules file to another drive and update in frozen state?

not sure about that, you may wait until either one of the developers sees this post or one of the experts may have a response to you, as I have never used this freeze program you are talking about.
