Updating Malwarebytes without network access

Recommended Posts

The rogue spyware on my infected computer is not allowing me to access the internet. I am able to load and run Malwarebytes but the standard download from the Malwarebytes site is 39 days out of date. The spyware on my computer is a recent problem. Is there a way to load an updated version of Malwarebytes onto my infected computer (perhaps using my other computer which is not infected)?

Hi, mlock:

The following is from the FAQ - Section A - Item #4

ISSUE: I need to get the latest database onto a computer that cannot access the Internet.

SOLUTION: You can manually copy the database from a working computer using a flash drive or CD onto the infected PC. Our database file is stored in the following locations.

Windows XP and 2000

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

Windows Vista and Windows 7:

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

You can also download a manual update from here - NOTE: This manual update will always be way behind in version level compared to updates from within the program
