I figured this would be a good thread to start for all of those ex-Windows users who have gotten vague messages from Windows that didn't really explain what the problem was. My favorite error message that I received was when I was ten and I was playing around with Paint Brush. The program closed and said, "This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down." I was on Paint Brush. What kind of illegal operations can you do on Paint Brush? In Microsoft's defense, I think they've gotten rid of that error message in recent years. So, what's your favorite error message from Windows?

JTLYK, I actually did get that error when I plugged in a USB mouse. I had to use the orignal PS 2 mouse to say Allow. :rolleyes:

That's hilarious. So Windows' idea of security is, "Spyware GOOD, USB mouse BAD."

Remember, that Vista message is not an Error, it's Vista watching out for you!

I just feel they are going a bit too far. A mouse for heavens sake?

OK, not Windows, but in Outlook "The operation failed." upon startup - that's it, no further explanation. No idea what operation failed or why it failed - just that it failed. Go Microsoft!
