Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

If you run software with a "Window Catcher" and drag the target over the icon it might identify it.

Software with this ability (that I know of)

UVK - Ultra Virus Killer

Revo Uninstaller Pro - Uninstall Software, Remove Programs easily, Forced Uninstall, Leftovers Uninstaller, Portable Uninstaller - need Hunter Mode enabled in 64bit pro version for 64bit machines. If you've got a 32bit machine the free version works fine.

Win 7 x64

I found the problem already, it's a comodo bug. I spoke with someone that happened to be running comod as well and was complaining about it and he was like "ooh I have the same thing, little grey box with half a C in it?" so I checked the comodo forum and found it mentioned (and solved) in the latest CIS bug corner. Nothing to worry about, just one of the billion little errors that sneak through with comodo's public updates, the beta testing really sucks IMO, the IS is good for a free service though so guess you just gotta live with those kind of things lol. Thanks for your help though guys! :) Small edit: Thanks for the suggestion btw callender, I didn't even think of throwing using something like that while I have Revo installed xD lol. Useful for in the future though.
