A few weeks ago my website was listed on Google as possibly harmful. I had my web people remove a few lines of malicious code and now it is OK on Google. I have a Google Adwords account that I associated with my website and was advertising for awhile. I have since paused the campaign and have received no charges for any advertising for a month now.

So since this time I have noticed on my traffic stats that I am getting "hits" from a website that is advertising with my URL. The strange thing is that if I click on their ad it goes to this page that's full of sponsored Google links. So I thought probably something had infected my computer and hacked into my google adwords account. Sure enough there was a another person verified in my account. So, I removed that person (and the code on my website that correlated with that user) and thought that would wrap it up. But it didn't. I ran spyware, virus scan and malware and found 15 malicious malware issues. I deleted those. So where I am at now is that they are still advertising under my url, but if no charges are occurring in my adwords account how can this be? The only thing I can think of is that it's pinging my site to look good to Google and then it goes to their site. Could my computer still be infected and/or could something still be on the website that is directing them to their website....but who is paying for all of this? Here's the URL. Any help would be appreciated as this is driving me nuts. hxxp://tiny.cc/okcnj
