IObit Malware Fighter 5.1 Offline Database Description
Antivirus applications protect computers from any malware attacks that may occur from browsing problematic sites or installing corrupted files. However, anti-viruses rely on databases with complex definitions to stay updated on the latest malware developments.
IObit Malware Fighter Offline Database is a compressed folder designed to help users maintain their IObit Malware Fighter application up-to-date. It contains two separate components that are specially designed to operate within the core antivirus software. Users must not attempt to modify or alter the files to prevent any discrepancies or software malfunctions from occurring.
Users can download this database as a separate file and copy to the specified location on their computers. It is an alternate solution to the automatic updater from the core application and can be employed on computers not connected to the Internet. The antivirus’ level of protection depends on the database being regularly updated, even if it is in an offline environment. The compressed folder can be downloaded on a separate computer and copied to the target machine.
The files must be unzipped in the “db” folder in the IObit Malware Fighter program’s main directory. Before attempting this action, users must also close their antivirus by right-clicking on their icon in the system tray and press the “Exit” button; otherwise, the application will not update or possibly crash.
After copying the files to the specified location, users can restart their antivirus application and check if the version is up-to-date in the Update window.
The database receives regular updates and will be available Tuesdays and Fridays thanks to the cloud technology used in IMF. The database is compatible with the particular version of antivirus, which means users must update the core application before manually updating the definitions.
