I have Webroot and Malwarebytes. Do I need and anti spyware as well? If so, what is a good one to have?

Couldn't hurt. It gets rid of a lot of junk. I think the SuperAntiSpyware is better than the regular AntiSpyware.

Spyware is a type of malware, and you say you already have MalwareBytes.

The premium version of Malwarebytes has a solid reputation for spyware protection.

You can have more than one anti-spyware program installed, but you probably don't want both running in real time.

Malwarebytes is excellent at getting rid of spyware.

You could get CCleaner and run that once a week or so. It gets all the cookies and junk that accumulates that isn't necessarily spyware. There is a setting to move cookies you want to keep for passwords such as Gameboomers.
