Does anyone recognize this icon?

The following scenario is happening. A software is calling a report viewing application, and that report viewing application is causing an issue. I am trying to identify the application, but all I have is an empty title bar with an icon. It looks familiar, but all searches so far were negative. My guess is that it is related so some kind .NET code, since the .NET Framework is required and I know there are report viewing routines, but I'm just not sure.

Does anyone here have an idea?

This is the icon in quesiton:

Any help, even a marginal pointer in the right direction, would be very much appreciated!

what application is in use,  use sysinternal's process explorer to identify the application based on the window.
Within the same interface you can get details about the app generating this window.

Get a copy of Microsoft Process Monitor.

Set it to trace process initiations only, otherwise you'll have a huge log to wade through.

Run the program that kicks off the offending application, then stop Process Monitor and look at the log.  Somewhere in there you'll see the parent start the offspring process.

One way is to filter the process as DrKlan suggest, the other is using the target tool to highlight the window you have a question about.  Though I would suggest using the process explorer tool rather than process monitor.  Process monitor, will let you see what the application you are using is doing.

It all depends on how detailed you want the answer.
i.e. if the process is identified as the same application, this means that this icon, is part of the icons available within this application, property of application, change image, select the application as the source of the images, and you should see the window's icon as one of the available selections there.

I'll try the process explorer as well as the process monitor and report back.

nobus: I know which program is running, but it's not the application that's the issue, it's a report window called by that application that is causing a problem, but I cannot see the name of that app.
