I've been in the computer industry 30 years. I have a Vista Ultimate laptop with McAfee that got the "your illegal--- pay us money" bug. From the Web I downloaded Webroot and Malwarebytes and was able to fix it.
ANY SUGGESTIONS: Is it time to upgrad McAfee--- should I be running a couple of tools in parallel: Webroot & Malwary Bytes? And Ad blocker.
Thanks for any suggestions!!!!

I for one would never use McAfee and you got hit with Ransomware! Running Webroot SecureAnywhere it a great Idea as a user myself I run it on it's own but the great thing about WSA is it can run with other AV's and Anti-Malware's so yes you could run MBAM with WSA as a Layered approach as many do.
WSA & MBAM Pro is a Great Combo. 😉
As stated above, Webroot is well suited to being used with other security products. If you do happen to experience issues using WSA in conjuction with other security software, make sure you post the issues here and submit a trouble ticket: chances are the problems can be resolved for you.
1) lose McAfee.
2) Use Webroot and Malwarebytes together.
Is that enought?
What about things like Anvi and Ad-Blocker--- are they worth anything.
And, Firewawall.... Just keep one running?
Thank you everyone for your suggestions..
Once you're acquainted with AM you will agree with me 😉
