Malwarebytes Anti-Malware database definitions file (mbam-rules.exe) is not
updated daily. Another way to get the most current definitions if you're having problems updating through the program's interface or have already manually downloaded the latest definitions, is to do the following:
Install MBAM on a clean computer, launch the program and update through MBAM's interface. Copy this definitions file (rules.ref
) to CD and transfer that file to the infected machine. Copy rules.ref to the location indicated for your operating system AFTER installing MBAM. If you cannot see the folder, then you may have to Reconfigure Windows
to show it.
