You can only place the setup file on a USB stick for transfer and installation to the hard drive. There is no portable file from the vendor which you can use to unzip and run a scan from the usb stick.

You just download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (mbam-setup-1.61.0.1400.exe) and save it to your usb stick.

Yes, there are portable versions of Malwarebytes Antimalware available from third-party vendors but they are not officially supported by Malwarebytes due to issues and concerns for using a portable environment. Some portable versions are pirated (cracked) copies created without authorization from the Malwarebytes Team and hosted on file sharing sites. Visiting such sites is a security risk which can make your system susceptible to a smörgåsbord of malware infections, remote attacks, and exposure of personal information. File sharing networks are thoroughly infected and infested with malware according to Senior Virus Analyst, Norman ASA. For this reason I would not recommend using any of them. If you choose to use such a version, then you do so at your own risk. However, a portable version has been suggested from time to time to the Malwarebytes Developers. See this discussion thread.

This is basically correct with one problem - The program is outdated within a few hours, so you are using an old version.
Both DrWeb Cure It and S.A.S are updated on a regular basis.~ S.A.S. is updated sometimes 3 times a day. I just checked mine -

With MBAM, you are better to always have it installed and use the " Chameleon " version if you are infected -

Good Luck -

In order to have malwarebytes to work in win7, you need to add the one of its folder located in C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes (**it's a hidden folder).. then add the folder onto the .wim file.

 

steps:

1. Dism /Mount-Wim /WimFile:C:\test\images\myimage.wim /index:1 /MountDir:C:\test\

 

then browse to the location of the mounted .wim dir and past the " C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes" folder into your .wim ProgramData folder

 

2. Dism /Unmount-Wim /MountDir:C:\test\ /commit

 

3. done.

Hi, @themantis:

2. Dism /Unmount-Wim /MountDir:C:\test\ /commit

 

3. done.

 

First: this thread is 4 years old.  It's unlikely the OP is still following it, and anything that might have applied to MBAM back in 2012 most likely would NOT be relevant or applicable today.

 

Second: the procedure you describe is not supported.  If you need help getting MBAM installed and running on a heavily infected system, please post back and let us know. We'll be happy to assist you with that, in the proper forum area or at the MBAM support forums and in a manner that does not violate the EULA.

 

Thanks,

MM

Since this topic is so old it would be better to just start a new topic of your own if you have further questions, comments or need assistance.

Thanks,
