Is it possible to do a complete "portable" install of MBAM on a thumb drive? I see there are instructions on installing MBAM on the infected machine, and then bring in/import rules.ref from a non-infected machine and thus run from with the latest-that-can-be-had defs.

I want to be totally clear... I'd like to know if there's a way to install the MBAM <program> on a thumb drive so that the MBAM <program> itself can be launched/run/used from the thumb drive. If so, then I could theoretically run the MBAM <program> from the thumb drive on a non-infected system and update its copy of rules.ref on the thumb drive and take this to the infected machine and use it from the thumb drive with the current correct defs.

But I don't think it's possible to do this. Or maybe it is? Do we have any instructions here on BC?

Thanks.

We do not have any instructions on how to do this. As discussed here at the MBAM forums it may be problematic.

Fine, thank you, I certainly get it now.
I guess my search here wasn't diligent enough.

On to more important stuff...

There are portable versions of Malwarebytes Antimalware available (portableappz, MediaFire, RapidShare) but none of them are officially supported by Malwarebytes due to issues and concerns for using a portable environment. If you choose to use such a version, then you do so at your own risk.
