I ran into an interesting issue: How can you find the PID for a Internet Security Certification Warning dialog box without IE or Chrome open, or for that matter, any dialog box when they do not appear to show up in Task Manager?

I had a computer which had a bunch of these open (something upwares of a 100+). It was for some travel site domain. It showed a warning to asking if you wanted to trust the site. I close nearly every app that used network services but could not figure out which it was hence the question.

Additional Information
Sadly, I could not get a screen shot of the dialog box, but something similar to this:

This was stacked multiple times. However, no web browsers were open that I could tell through PS Explorer. The computer has not had an issue since. Though, now I wonder how can you grab a PID from a random dialog box on Windows when the box does not show up in Task Manager or PS Explorer.

I guess running something like Redline might yield more information to be examined.
