Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
You guys think I might get booted? Is there anything I can do before hand to make sure that I dont?
BTW this is my first post, but have been reading through this site for quite some time.

However should you get in trouble, plead the same case as you just did here. They will probably accept that and let you "stay in business".
..but as Jenstar wrote somewhere a while ago: "Don't ever click your own ads, never ever!

Yea that was dumb of me to log into my account on another computer.
No, it wasn't; it was a perfectly normal thing to do.
I've clicked on my ads at least five times now. Just a few weeks ago twice in one day. I emailed adsense every time and got the standard reply, but, the key to me is that it's been noted by both of us that there were what they might consider "fraudulent clicks". From what I've read here on WW, I really believe that errant clicks are only a problem if it causes them to take a closer look at your website and they see something they don't like beyond just someone on the same IP as you use to check your stats clicking on an ad.
I would say if he clicked on one, it would be once, twice max.
For some reason my touchpad on my laptop reverted to "tap to click" and I didn't realize what was happening until I click on two of my ads. At the time I was trying to block URL's and was mousing over to see the URL's. I sent them an email saying what happened and which ad I clicked.
I'm with EFV on this one - you can take paranoia too far!
Exactly. An IP address is just one of many data that Google must use to determine click fraud and there has been no evidence that anyone has every had their account closed because of the computer they used to check their stats.
Simple solutions is to just ask them never to click on any AdSense ad on your site and why it would be bad to do so.
