With the last version of Webroot "Antivirus" I believe you could uncheck this option and it would stay in place until the next update from the cloud which would overwrite the selected option.  in the latest version of Webroot "Antivirus" I do not see that option in the menus. 
Can Webroot not come up with a simple solution to solve this without editing the registry?  Some people share a computer within the family, etc, and the primary user may not want someone having such easy access to permanently deleting a file.  Editing the registry is not a good option for your typical PC user.

Hello skribb and Welcome to the Webroot Community Forums.
Have you tried doing a clean reinstall of WSA because you shouldn't have that in the AV only version? Uninstall reboot and download a fresh JoeJ the V.P. of Development.
We recently added a registry value to remove it - if you create a new DWORD value under HKLMSoftwareWRData (or on x64 - HKLMSoftwareWow6432NodeWRData) named NoRightClickErase with a value of 1, you will no longer receive the right click menu for erasing files.
