annoying stupidity with link to outdated offline database file

Recommended Posts

Downloaded and Installed MBAM v1.31

Downloaded and Installed latest Database

Version: 1442

File Size: 1.63 MB

from here http://www.gt500.org/malwarebytes/database.jsp

When I try to run MBAM program it errors with RED X

"The database you are using is not supported by this version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. Download the latest version of the program."

ggggggggggggrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

I find it utterly STUPID and ANNOYING to provide a link to an outdated database file, yet indicating it's the latest.

http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

Latest Database

Download from GT500.org

AND the error message is actually BACKWARDS. I had the latest version of the program and needed the latest version of the database file.

.... STUPIDITY at it's finest and ANNOYING!

After a wasted hour of searching - Thanks to Raid in the forums for posting a viable solution.

cd "Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware"

Inside is the rules.ref file. Copy it and the latest installer from the site to a usb stick. Install to the target PC as you normally would. Then copy the rules.ref file from USB stick to above location, overwriting the one already present.
