When I just clicked on one of the information pages on the top of a page wanting to see one of the pages like:

He was Famous Actor Before His Plastic Surgery Guess who
27 Embarrassing Moments Captured by Cameras
Men, Try This togight - You;ll Never Need ED Pills Again!
Mom Uses "3 Steps Income Protocal" to Make $100k/year in 2 - 3 Hours.
She Was A Huge Star Before Her Plastic Sugery, Guess Who She is!


You know one of those, I got bells and tones from my computer saying, "Your computer has just alerated us that it has been conformized do not turn off this page and contact us immediately." DAM I had to restart the dam thing and it wouldn't stop until I turned off the Dam page just like it said not to do.

Wanting to know what type of viruses did I get? Is my computer messed up? And why would Jokeroo put this type of thing on here?

I think he meant he wanted to see How She looked (the ad)

You couldn’t pay me to click on an ad lol
My CC just got compromised and I thought I was pretty careful

Yes cannot remember the excite wording but something like: "You cannot believe what she looks like now." And had a photo of Pauley Perrette (Abby Scluto of N.I.C.S.) Oh btw she still is HOT!

I'd say you already had a virus on your computer and clicking on the ads at the top of the page triggered it. The ads are provided by Revcontent, one of the main providers of advertising revenue for sites such as this, so viruses are often targeted at them as an easy trigger.

If your curiosity gets triggered by something in the adverts I suggest you try doing a search rather than clicking on them. That's how I found out the "He was a famous actor before his surgery" isn't an actor at all, but French TV presenter Igor Bogdanoff. He and his twin brother Grichka are thought to suffer from acromegaly (excess growth hormone), so surgery wasn't involved at all.

Sometimes some of them will give you a virus but if you have an antivirus is should protect you.
Then some of them you click on and you can't leave they hold you hostage lol you can't X out of them.
I don't give a shit if they say click this link we will give you a million dollars ~ DON'T!
If it happens again press these buttons on keyboard: ctrl and hold down alt and hold down and then delete.
Click on task Manager or start task manager and find the page you were on or one that doesn't look like it
should be there lol and click on it and then click end task.

Lol, Steven

I think it would be best to avoid the temptation to click on the ads. I have AdBlock Plus on my Chrome Browser so I never see the ads. ;)
If you use Chrome, I would suggest adding it as an extension. If you need help, let me know. xoxoxo

Hi, Jia. Welcome to the Roo! Please explain how not clicking on a fake page will help the website make money? lol
I doubt Squirt is making any money for the website by the ads just sitting there but I could be wrong. :unsure:

squirt doesn't make money for the Roo, if I had my way they wouldn't be there
but the light bill has to be paid
and the way it was explained to me is that Jokaroo gets paid for every page that's clicked on that has ads
don't have to click on the ads for Jokaroo to be paid, they really do get paid for just being there

and btw ... slava wouldn't say that the ads don't pose a risk to our computers, all he said was "say thank you that you still have the Roo"
*basically*
