  1. For phone calls, I screen them by letting them go to my answering machine and if it’s someone I know, I pick up the phone as they’re leaving a message. That’s with my landline. With my cellphone, I do the same thing and let it go to voicemail but the biggest difference is I don’t know who’s leaving the message until they’re finished so I can’t jump into the call right away like I can with the landline. Most of the time, if they’re a scammer, they won’t leave a message and if they do, I have time to do some research or ask around to see if they are legit. Also call your phone company and ask them what you can do to limit these kinds of calls because with my company, I can go to my online account and turn on certain features to block some scam calls automatically before they reach my phone. Hope this helps.
  2. As far as malware coming through email, and someone could reword this better, but I think as long as you don’t click on any email links, then the malware can’t infect your computer, right?
  3. I had this issue as well. Support told me that they thought in my case it was Carbonite that might be causing the issue if it created a backup of some of Malwarebytes’ files. I’ll post the part of their email with their instructions for me which solved my problem in case you want try it and see if it helps you: Step 1 - Safe ModeI have provided the instructions for booting into Safe Mode with networking.
