A few weeks ago, a friend of mine fell at home. She was equipped with a Life Alarm which included a sensor for falls. I was first contact for emergencies. The system contacted its base station and fortunately, automatically notified emergency responders. I live nearby and needed to open an iron gate for the responders. The Malwarebytes app blocked the emergency message from the Life Alert service, probably because it was automated. Fortunately, the backup number was a landline not equipped with spam blocking. Obviously, much more care is needed to avoid this issue. I have removed the app and will not restore it. My other blocking app, Nomorobo, did not block or alert to that same call. Something is clearly wrong with the Malwarebytes app. I do understand it's in beta. People whose phone lines are essentials for life support or other emergency calls should not use it-- anyway not now.
I don't know what's going on. The default option Malwarebytes came pre-installed with was to run a threat scan on startup. I deleted that to get better performance since my computer has very limited resources and set it to run a hyper scan every week instead. I do not have any other scheduled scans. However, it seems to ignore that and runs a threat scan on startup regardless. It happened 4 times and on these dates: July 3rd, 2018; July 4th, 2018; July 7th, 2018; July 11th, 2018. It happens at random, not necessarily always. For example, when I turned my computer on today it didn't. I tried to fix the issue by reinstalling with the Malwarebytes Cleanup Utility, but it didn't fix the problem. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.
