You can download the Stand-Alone definitions from your computer that has an internet connection through this link:

Malware Protection Center


Just choose the appropriate platform for the Operating System you are currently using. Transfer the file either through your network or using a USB drive then run the file on the computer which has an MSE installation that needs the update.

If you need further instructions you can follow or read this link FIRST .

Yes, download the definitions on a PC with Internet access and save them to a flash drive, carry the flash drive to the other PC and install them. When they are downloaded automatically by MSE and installed, there is no file for you to copy.
