I am wondering if there is any other protection I should be using on my system along with WebRoot?

I have only been using Webroot since I bought this laptop about 2 months ago. I am not sure if I should have other types of protection on it to stop any type of Malware/Spyware/Virus/Hackers.

Hi LoveableBunny
 
WSA is an ANTI MALWARE application and the definition of Malware is as follows (from Wikipedia):
 
"'Malware' is an umbrella term used to refer to a variety of forms of hostile or intrusive software,[4] including computer viruses, worms, trojan horses, ransomware, spyware, adware,scareware, and other malicious programs."
 
so from this you can see that WSA does in fact cover/deal with all those threats, and more, that you have included in your question, except hackers...but rest assured it is also very efficient against them too.
 
Hope that helps?
