    They stopped showing the detection rate in this one. Not sure if I like that.

    Webroot SecureAnywhere AV was one of three other products not certified.

    If the other AV-Comparatives tests do not accurately show the protection of Webroot, what makes this test accurate?

    Maybe the problem is Webroot...

    It was agreed by Webroot and AV-Comparatives that testing Webroot would require a different test procedure. This is why I asked how this current test is accurate.

    I think @Charyb is referring to this forum post: https://community.webroot.com/t5/An...e-from-AV-Comparatives-and-Webroot/m-p/17708/

    In that post it was said that:
    One assumes this has been done for this particular test for Webroot to be included.

    I think that AV-C Tests are based in OS popularity rather than modernity.
