I'm not totally sure but I think it only appears when there is a
problem that needs fixing, so if everything is switched on in security
centre there wont be a icon in the taskbar.

If you need to see if it works, try turning the firewall off and see
what happens, just don't forget to turn it back on.

You will only see a notification icon in the "Tray" when there is a problem,
such as when the firewall is turned off, UAC is turned off or Windows cannot
detect the presence of antivirus software.
