    Looks like gnome-app-install.

    Accepted Solution

    If xkill is installed, you could try to kill that window with your mouse:

    ALT + F2 (to get the 'run' command), type: xkill [Enter], thin click on the application window.

    Assisted Solution

    it's Gnome-App-Install, open a console terminal, run 'top' command, press '<' or '>' keys to rearrange processes column and, when you find it, kill it by issuing K->PID->9
