Webroot Complete and Microsoft Security Essentials question

I ran MSE with Webroot since last year, in fact was advised by pop-up that there is no conflict about firewalls, just another layer added.  But I find that MSE has nailed a couple serious trojans, possibly missed by Webroot.  Should I be worried that Webroot isn't doing its job? 

 

Just wondering, bookburn

Webroot  stays out of the way in a layered approach and would allow MSE to do it's job.Webroot would only step in if something made it past MSE.
