Can't connect to the Internet from my infected Desktop but laptop is still working.

Anyway, I can't update Malwarebytes! I think I read that I can copy the updates from my laptop (via CD) but what is the proper file?

'ello :thumbsup:

If you have MBAM fully installed and updated on your laptop, navigate to the following directory:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\WINDOWS\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

and copy the file rules.ref to CD or flash drive.

Put the file into the same location on your desktop, overwriting the rules.ref that is already there.

Hope that helps.
