    Anything to run along side webroot to protect banking and shopping or is webroot WSA plus enough?

    Frankly, I have concerns about WSA 'being good enough'. Unless you are using Win10 I would recommend adding Bitdefender Free (coexisting well with WSA on my Win7 system with no noticeable performance impact).

    Bitdefender AV Free is not (yet) compatible with Win 10. You might checkout Avira AV Free.

    I'm trying Emisoft alongside WSA.....Now for the big question..I was on malware tips and was told there is a problem with the win 10 firewall that webroot won't fully integrate with it?

    And why would you say that? WSA's Identity Shield hasn't failed in any of it's Banking tests results:

    Read here about Win 8 or Win 10 and Windows Firewall and why WSA's Firewall doesn't show the extra settings! https://community.webroot.com/t5/Id...tions-fw-control-in-Win-8-Win-8-1/idi-p/60003 and note what Joe said back then!

    I have WSA 9.0.6.18 and just got a new WSA Password Chrome extension. WSA must have just gone to a new version.

    Strange update, yesterday....I had to reboot due to a problem. But, earlier I got the automatic update to WSA, which I allowed. Also, during this session I allowed updates to VS and Process Lasso.

    This can be seen after the aforementioned reboot. Tiny Watcher monitors, and therefore shows significant changes to important files in the system directory.

    I noted there had been changes to WSA, that have occurred, and seeing for first time, and I have disallowed those, I hope.

    Webroot Filtering Extension 1.2.0.24 (now signed) doesn't like Random Agent Spoofer add-on in Firefox 42 32-bit.
    Strangely, can't type a reply in Gmail (though typing works when forwarding).
    Disabling Webroot Filtering Extension, or setting Random Agent Spoofer to 'Real Profile' fix the problem.

    There's not much Webroot can do with all the Extensions for Browsers so it's WSA or Random Agent Spoofer. Have you checked to see if it's the Identity Shield as that will block some not well known Extensions for seeing what's on the web pages or sees it doing something it shouldn't be doing. If you like contact Webroot Customer Service and ask them to look into it.
