HI
I was wondering since WSA doesn't scan emails if it would be all right to add a second anti Virus,,I'm thinking Cryptlocker and other infected attachments

I'm trying Emisoft anto malaware alongside Secureanywhere..seems ok so far..Tried it with vipe internet security but I don't know if both firewalls would work together?

Yes either one would work as WSA is designed to work with other AV's, AM's and Firewalls if wanted.

WSA uses Windows firewall. So if your using a suite with a firewall or a stand alone firewall its best to disable Windows Firewall. Emsisift AntiMalware tends to be heavy on a system. WSA all by itself is plenty sufficient.

My tip...just to make sure that they play well together...is to make sure that you whitelist/trust/exclude (what ever the term is) WSA in the other AV/IS, AND add the key executables of the other IS/AV as 'Allow' under the 'Block/Allow Files' tab in the PC Security settings section.
 
Whilst WSA is indeed designed from the outset to work with/to complement other IS/AV applications, I have always done that when running WSA & KIS together...and they have played very nicely with each other.

The reason I mentioned Vipre(Internet Security) is because i have a lot of time left on subscription.It also has a firewall...:cathappy:

If you want to yes you can but do you need it I think not. Just a note about the firewall: http://www.webroot.com/En_US/SecureAnywhere/PC/WSA_PC_Help.htm#C4_Firewall/CH4a_ManagingFirewall.htm
