  • The icon should always show unless there is something broken in One Care or Windows is set to hide inactive icons.

  • On a system with lots of startup items and resource issues (older hardware, lower memory available) I've found that the icon sometimes doesn't load if you power up and immediately log into Windows when the Log In screen appears. If you wait a minute after the login screen appears before signing in, the icon is typically first in the system tray at that point. Yes, that would be a glitch.
