Bad Message Box Buttons

If you decide to use a message box use the appropriate buttons and use the appropriate text. The text in this dialog is strange enough without the extra language backflips that the developer added.

Another example from the same program:

Bad Message Bad Buttons

Here you're showing an information box and you have a "Yes" button. It's just weird. What are you saying yes to? Instead display a progress indicator while data is downloading and add the warning text not to disconnect.
