    This is the Missing Sector Orb Weaver, Zygiella x-notata. They are usually found living outside the windows but as autumn brings a chill in the air they frequently take the opportunity of coming in through open windows to make their webs where it is warmer. That said they are one of the few species that is active through the winter months.

     

    They are harmless and would be much better off outside so catch it however you can and toss it out the back door.
