    You can manually copy the database from a working computer using a flash drive or CD onto the infected PC. The 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

    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

    The version on run in safe mode has always worked for me to get to a state where I can connect to the Internet and download definitions. Is this a case where the computer will never have Internet?
