Can you possibly get a virus in your tablet by downloading certain pictures from Google?

I'd like to retract my vote, lol.
I once went to a website that was mostly in
Russian except for almost every tv show and movie ever
It seemed to good to be true then I got a gov't warning
Saying I had to pay like 200 or 300 dollars for pirated inappropriate
Movies involving children but when I went to the computer store
Turns out I was fake and it was just a hacker
Those trojan virus' are quite common on the "oh my" side of the web.
I have an annoying virus. Random words are blue, and when you hover over them, they are ads. also, i have popup ads like you wouldn't believe.

Just run malwarebytes or something. Adware is easy to remove.

Doubtful that's a virus, just built in links in webpages. Do they happen to be underlined?

Adblock plus extension solves this.

If these don't work, run MBAM as suggested, and have microsoft security essentials constantly running in the background since the non-premium ver. of MBAM only runs on demand and doesn't offer real-time protection.

That just means that you installed a sister program at the same time as when you downloaded another program. You always have to check during the installation that you unchecked boxes that allow them to install other programs. And even then, sometimes those additional programs get installed anyway, without asking you about it. They are really not dangerous and you can uninstall them whenever.
MissingNo.
It happened to me as well. You need to find the complete name of the program, then simply uninstall it of delete it manually.

Also, check what browser extensions you are running - if you see anything unfamiliar, uninstall it immediately and double-check the folder to make sure it's completely gone.

If they caught you downloading CP, they'd be on you quick and wouldn't just fine you a couple hundred USD. Remember though, be careful on shady websites Wink. The actual site may be legit but the pop up adds are most likely not.
Yea especially if you accidentally click on them
