Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have a computer that does not have internet and I installed Emsisoft Anti-Malware. How can I update the virus database? 
Can I copy the database on a computer that has the internet and i put it on the computer which has not internet?
Where can I find the directory of the virus database on the computer?
 Thanks for your help.

There really isn't any good way to do that. Manually copying database files would only work if Emsisoft Anti-Malware were completely shut down. Aside from the fact that it protects its folder from modification while it's running, it also has those files loaded into memory, so you wouldn't be able to copy over them either way.

In addition, keep in mind that there really isn't much point in running Anti-Virus on a system that can't connect to the Internet. Without access to their cloud networks, Anti-Virus is often less effective and more prone to false positives. In addition, the possibility of a computer with no Internet/network connection being infected is very low.

Yes, the Enterprise Console has an update proxy that will allow other computers on your network to download updates.
