Changing Error messages
Is it possible in Win Xp to change what the error message says. Like instead of "Fatal Error!" i could make it say "oh no you did something wrong!"

I'm sure you can but it would probably involve some major hex editing/hacking. I'm not really sure though. I wouldn't change it to what you suggested because that implies it being your fault when it is actually microsoft's fault, just repeat to yourself, "it's not my fault", "it's not my fault", ... .

Try a PE resource editor. There's a couple free one's out there, one I think is called Resource Hacker. Just do a google search.

hmmmm you'd probably had to do some shell editing.
Here's a good place to search for those hacks http://www.shellcity.net/index.php , even if you don't find what you're searching for, they've got some pretty interesting stuff there.
If you are into doing the hack yourself get the dummies tut for shell editing http://www.codeproject.com/shell/ and sooner or latter you'll be able to go deep into your SO and mmaybe you'll find the error message.
