    I am wondering how I might go about updating the definitions/database for a comp that doesn't have internet access. I have access to a comp with internet access, and can install the most recent version and update it with no problems. My problem is how do I transfer the updated definitions/database to a comp without internet access; to have it work just as well as if I had installed and updated the definitions/database on that comp without internet access?

    Please forgive me if I am being a bit dumb but why would you want a firewall on a machine that has no internet access. Is it perhaps because of the annoying warnings that your computer shows all the time?

    It's currently disconnected from the internet to remove viruses/trojans/backdoors/malwares/spyware/adwares installed on it.

    The internet will be restored once the aforementioned are removed.

    Download the defs and removal tools to a USB flash drive or burn to removable media.

    Examples of quality tools:

    1) SAS definitions installer: http://superantispyware.com/definitions.html
    2) Install MBAM on both pc's, update on the clean one, then look in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware for rules.ref
    3) Install Avira and d/l the latest VDF: http://www.avira.com/en/support/vdf_update.html
    4) Combofix: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix
