Question mark icon is not recommended in messageboxes.
We should replace question mark icons with other icons.
MS's guidelines tell it pretty straight:
However, the question mark message icon is no longer
recommended, because it does not clearly represent a
specific type of message and because the phrasing of a
message as a question could apply to any message type.
In addition, users can confuse the message symbol
question mark with Help information. Therefore, do not
use this question mark message symbol in your message
boxes. The system continues to support its inclusion
only for backward compatibility.
We have few messageboxes with question mark icons. I
think most of those (for file operations) should be
replaced with warning icon.
