Space ship's beating heart popped up on my screen?

Any been seen this before? Popped on my my screen. Was beating like heart, an evil AI spaceship type heart. Couldn't do anything with it. It stayed up no matter what screen I bought up. Tried touching it, moving it, nothing. It was permanently affixed in place until I rebooted. Was very strange to see this thing staring at me and pulsating.

It's funny because originally when Sentry was rolled out, the graphic was very close to the exact one from HAL 2000. I believe Tesla had to change it for legal reasons to what it is now but I could be mistaken.
Tesla did use the HAL eye from 2001: A Space Odyssey and were told they couldn't use it for copyright reasons...so they changed it to "the Eye of Sauron" from the Lord of the Rings movies...
