When Joke.JepRuss is executed, it displays a message asking the user whether all the files on the system should be deleted. If you try to click No, the cursor moves away from the No button.

If you click Yes, after waiting for a short period of time, this joke program will display a window pretending to delete all the files on the system.

However, the files will not be deleted. Once the joke has pretended to delete all the files, it displays a window asking the user whether the computer should be restarted. Only Yes can be clicked in this window. After you click Yes, the program displays a message mentioning that it was only a joke.
