To add to what Daniel said, an explaination of HOW this happens with Chrome sometimes.
Once WSA expensions have been removed from Chrome, especially if you manually removed them but sometimes just from a normal WSA uninstall from the computer, Chrome has built in extension security that can make this just a bit diffucult.
Google does this intentionally so that if there is a 'bad extension' that a user does not like nor want, they can manually remove it and Chrome will keep the extension from sneaking back in. This is especially useful for extensions that can be classified as malware or PUA's.
Go into your Chrome Settings, Extensions, and see if there is a listing for Webroot Filter Extension. If so, make sure that it is enabled. It is possible it installed but did not enable itself.
Also, if it is there, can you verify which version number is showing?
Please go into the Extension Manager for Chrome,via Settings (topright hand corner of browser window and select) selecting More Tools and then Extensions and checking to see that you have the Webroot Web Filtering Extension installed AMD enabled...andost back to let us know what your set up is.

Does the Gaming version work somehow differently or are we seeing an old legacy form of the Web Thread Shield software at play here?
That W at the right side is for the Password Manager. It is not uncommon for it to be missing following a re-intall of WSA.
Just run the toolbarfix.exe file to fix it. Download it, before running please close ALL browser windows. It will reinstall the Password Manager toolbar on all three supported browsers :)
Let us know if this helps!
