Icon for my Windows Utility

Contest Brief

I need an updated icon for my Windows utility called Switcheroo. It is a small program that lets the user switch between any open window (like the normal "Alt+Tab" keyboard combination). However it is search centered so that the user filters among open windows using text. ([url removed, login to view])

The utility places a tray icon in the system tray. The current icon is the arrow_switch from the Silk collection ([url removed, login to view]) but I would like a fresh icon in higher quality.

It would also be nice if the icon could be used as a logo for the project, but that's a second priority.

The important things for the icon design are:
- The icon should be simple since it will be seen in small size in the user's system tray (check it in size 32x32 pixels, but the icon itself should be delivered in higher quality)
- It should visually indicate switching in some way
- It must work on different backgrounds

I'm looking forward to see your suggestions! :)

    I thought I would post a small update after the first few entries have arrived :)

    - Please be sure to check if the icon works in small size, e.g. 32x32 pixels, because that will be the icon's main job

    - I prefer a simple visual style (not too many gradients and different colors)

    Thanks for your entries! And please keep 'em coming! :)
