    I would LOVE to edit my windows xp error messages, i have resource hacker, but have no idea where the files are. Can any tell me if there is a central location where all of them are stored?

    Why would you want to do that? You could always do a screen grab of the error message in question and change it in a photo editing program. For example MS Paint!!

    No centralized place for error messages. You'll have to search. Most of them are Dialog resources inside .exe or more often .dll files. Any specific one you want to change?

    Would rather try to solve problems than make error messages prettier. :p

    Well the one that says "Windows has encountered an unkown error while running this application" or something like that.
