Bad labelling can cause confusion.

"Confirm Cancel"
Cancelling now will return you to the main menu. Are you sure you want to cancel?

OK | Cancel
^ it sounds as if clicking cancel will return you to the main menu when in fact you have to click ok.

Should be

"Confirm Leaving"
Leaving now will return you to the main menu. Are you sure you want to leave?

OK | Cancel
This way there is no confusion. Over if you have to click cancel or not.

Any reason besides no? it's actually extremely poor English and labelling on HP's behalf and can cause confusion.

Haha, that's pretty funny. I think I'm going to save that for posterity's sake.

How do you even get confused by this?

It's simply asking you wether you're ok with cancelling or if you want to cancel cancelling.

You sound heavily invested in the current wording of the confirmation box. Care to explain your stance on the matter any further? Provide any insight as to why it shouldn't be changed to be more clear? No?
