Missing Firewall icon

Hello,
I have a client who is missing the Firewall link in Security Center. The
other two are in place and firewall.cpl works fine from run. I've tried the
online utility from, I believe, secsecurity but that doesn't work. How do I
restore the icon and link for the Windows Firewall in Security Center?
Thanks,
--

RE: Missing Firewall icon

I am answering because I have not seen any other answers to this.
I am useing a 3rd party Firewall. And the icon on system tray dissapeared.
After running "Spybot and AdAware to no avail. I cleared all TIFs and at
reboot the icon came back. There must have been something attached to a
cookie or sort that hid the firewall access. Don't really know if this would
cause the onboard firewall onXP to vanish but you may try this.

Open Security Center, click "Change the way Security Center alerts me"
and make sure "Firewall" is checked.
