Quick, hide the computer before the cops come!

Back when I did software tutoring for new computer users, I got more repeat questions about this Windows 95/98 dialog than anything else.

Did I break the law? I didn't mean to do anything illegal. What did I do? Am I in trouble? Is Microsoft going to report me to the police? I'm afraid to use my computer. I don't want to be an accidental law breaker.

When software incorrectly leads users to believe they've done something illegal, I say there's a problem here.
