Warning dialogs should be: 
Clearly phrased messages, non-technical terms and no obscure error codes should not be used.  
 Specific instead of general. 
If the message is reporting a problem concerning a specific object or application, the object or application name should be used when referring to it.  
 Informative and constructive. 
The reason for a problem should be given, and hints how to solve it. 
 Polite, non-terrifying and non-blaming. 
Wording that terrifies the user ("fatal", "illegal") shouldn't be used, users shouldn't be blamed for their behavior, and the message should be polite.
