Hi, AlexC:

Please see the FAQ - Section A - Item #4 about updating offline.
Also, 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





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

    Note: Starting with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.60, you must also copy the file database.conf located within the Configuration folder which is in the same folder as rules.ref listed above.

Thanks!
The problem is that when the manual update (the installer) is used, MBAM crashes and won't start. This happened in two computers with Win7.

Actually, you are the second person who has reported this problem. The other person was on Usenet.
