  1. The ornamental design for an agent icon for a display screen of a programmed computer system, as shown and described.

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a first embodiment of an agent icon for a display screen of a programmed computer system showing our new design, the vertical lining on the oval nose portion being understood to represent the color red;

FIG. 2 is a front elevation view thereof; and,

FIG. 3 is a front elevation view of a second embodiment thereof, the difference residing in the lack of color resulting from the display of the icon on a black and white screen display.
