Webroot's suite has a nice interface, but the program needs to get better at detecting zero-day attacks and distinguishing between threats and nonthreats.

As you have discovered there are a lot of reviewers who, I would respectfully submit, have not understood the key approach that WSA uses; very much simplified....that is that a non active piece of malware is not a threat, and WSA kicks in as and when it detects the activity or monitors when it cannot determine that an unknown file/exe is not malware. Of course, most reviews and comparative tests do not look at this/test for this at present...but things are changing as the message is getting through.
If you have not already seen WSA scores 100% in MRG Efitas tests.... then you may find it interesting reading, and you may also be interested in this What Happens if Webroot "Misses" a Virus? KB article.
Finally, if you have the time, I would recommend taking the time to watch the following 3 Great Video's with Webroot CEO, Dick Williams and Michael Malloy, Executive VP of Product and Strategy of Webroot Inc., which explain very well WSA's unique approach:
Hope that you find this useful? :D
Your are most welcome :D
I love finding about these things and passing the information on when I can and where appropriate...it is this ethos of this Community that makes it probably the best one on the Web...well, at least in my book.
Let us know if you have more questions.
Have a great weekend.
