    Project is still active.
    This project is absolutely free to use; I do not charge anything for Malwarebytes Bootable.
    Derivative projects are allowed and encouraged.
    Malwarebytes Bootable is clean of viruses, malware, or any kind of malicious code.
    USB bootable using Rufus or similar USB tools.
    LAN and WLAN drivers added!
    Trackpad drivers added!
    Now updatable!
    Gluten-free, non-GMO, gender neutral, and no trans-fats!



    I've decided to create and maintain a bootable Malwarebytes disc. It's been updated to 2020 / June / 08 definitions upon this release.

    Click the Google Drive or MEGA buttons below for the download directory:

    1.) Choose your USB drive you're going to use. Use caution, as it will be erased!

    2.) Click on the CD-Rom drive icon on the right, and choose the Malwarebytes ISO to put on the USB drive.

    3.) Set the File system to NTFS, Default cluster size of 4096.

    4.) Leave everything else as it is, and click the Start button. This won't take much time at all. When it is finished, boot it up and do a Custom Scan on your Windows drive.

    This is how it should look:

    Updating the definitions normally (in the app) works now, as long as you get online using PENetwork. I have also included an "Instructions" Read Me on the desktop to walk people through it.

    Happy to hear this news. Malware Bytes has always been my antivirus (in previous years) most widely used, and have it at your USB stick is definitely an advantage for friends or family PC.
    Congratulations ;)

    If you create a torrent I'll seed it with my box.

    IMO Malwarebytes is not really an AV, it's more specialized than a regular AV. For me it's just a tool to get rid of things that a regular AV won't, it complements a good AV well.

    Yes, a replacement of AV that's useful today in OS like Wondows 10.
    So every people, with this .exe, could run MB and scan the file for a fast and light solution instead of install the whole app.

    Yes, but this is bootable, so the malware won't be activated and can't hide itself, or replicate during a scan. You just have to set it to do a custom scan on your targeted Windows drive.

    The best use of it is to run Windows in Safe Mode and use the bootable app. It reminds me of GParted for Linux, what a time :'D

    Is your PC set to boot from USB? UEFI and Legacy BIOS booting both work, and it should boot into a stripped-down WinPE and launch Malwarebytes.

    What are you using to create the bootable USB?

    Try YUMI. Instead of extracting the image to the USB and installing a bootloader to load the OS it uses GRUB to chainload images off the USB. It allows you to have more than one OS on a single USB drive as well, so you can have a Swiss army knife.

    Also, YUMI has a winPE setting near the bottom of the list, so using that should be the best setting.
