"Your Google AdWords account has been suspended for violation of Google's Advertising Policies in this or a related account."

It has been a number of years since I have visited my adwords account, and the above is the message that now greets me.  How can I find out what the violation is?  I see in my acount two ads that I set up some time ago.  Neiter have any activity on them.  Could they have been the culprit? They are affiliate ads.

Could that be the problem? If I delete the ads will that solve it? I'm trying to get back into one of my old acounts to see if I have anything els lingering.

I really don't know, since I can't put my machine at risk;

Check with your site programmer/ developer.

This is not my site.  It is an affiiate programme I was promoting.  I've found that my other adwords account is cancelled, probably due to inactivity, I'll try reinstating that and see what happens. Thank you for taking then time to respond.

Hi Miriam,

You mentioned you had two ads set up in your account. Can you please share the other URL?
