These images are all funny but genuine error messages I've gotten from Windows or Windows applications.

odbc

Access and ODBC get really confused.

access

And now Access is completely clueless as to what happened.

help

Look at the buttons. Yes, the right button brought up a help file.

toplevel

Look at the title bar. Does this look like a top-level directory?

delete

This one's from Windows NT, and is without a doubt the funniest dialog box I've ever seen from any program. The mind boggles as to how such an error could be generated, and what to do now.

cancel

So do I stop the operation or stop the operation?

400

I swear that Visual Basic delivered me this exact error message box while working on an Excel macro. It was not a debugging Msgbox() output; VB did this all by itself.
