Negative Influence

I encountered this pop-up notice on a Flash-based T-Shirt editor application last night.

This might negatively influence the application

It reads

Loading Error
A loading error occured [sic]. This might negatively influence the use of the application. Please reload the application if this occurs.

Beside the spelling mistake, the euphemism for ‘the application might break’, it’s also not clear after which ‘this’ occurring one should reload the application. And will I lose my work so far?
