I have a function that I have no idea how long it is going to take so i cannot use a progress bar to tell the user how much has been done so I want to show them an animated icon that does something to give them the sense that something is actually happening.  The problem is I want a nice new "XP Style" icon and cannot find anything.  Does anybody have a place I can get this?

There are number of animated icons in the Image Library which is supplied with Visual Studio 2005. Library cam be found in the \Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\VS2005ImageLibrary directory. Open file _MSAnimations - Readme.html and see whether one of these icons is OK for you.
