What can I do if a site is causing pop-ups or installing viruses on my computer?

As mentioned in our programme policies, sites showing Google ads may not change user preferences, redirect users to unwanted websites, contain pop-ups or pop-unders, initiate downloads or include malware. If you come across a site displaying Google ads that is violating our policies, please let us know.

In addition, if you believe that your computer has been infected, we suggest searching for software that may remove harmful malware and viruses from your computer.
