Anyone who has ever so much as tapped at a computer will have experienced an infuriating error message - an untimely message guaranteed to inspire hitherto unknown levels of seething hate.

With Windows 10 now rolling out across the world's computers, a fresh batch of error warnings are filling screens - including this gem captured by Jonathan Timar.

With this fresh hell in mind, peruse our gallery of the weirdest error messages ever discovered.
