Friendly(X) UI

One would think that in this day and age of highly interactive user experiences, simple message boxes can't go too wrong as far as UX is concerned. At least that's what I thought until I came across this dialog:

Perhaps you don't notice what I'm grumbling about -- the link provided to get the latest virus definition files (erased for confidentiality reasons) is neither a hyperlink nor a selectable text! That's right, you can't even select that text and copy-paste into the browser leaving you with the only choice of typing the link manually, a letter at a time.

Well, at least they got the grammar right and managed to convey the message correctly. So it's not as bad as it could've been!
