How do I identify the process that owns a spurious dialog box?

A spurious dialog box (informative, no?) keeps popping up on reboot.

Sysinternals Process Explorer has this feature in the form of a crosshair that you drag over any window or widget. Click the "crosshair button" and drag to the window, then release.

Check out Winspector. Install it & run. Switch the Window list's tab to Process. Then drag and drop the red "foresight" from the upper left corner of Winspector onto that dialog box. Winspector will highlight which process owns the message box.
